A woman from St. Louis died on a highway in central Missouri because of how bad the roads were. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident happened at 6:20 p.m. on Sunday on U.S. 50, a half-mile east of Old Highway 50, in Morgan County.
State police say Bridget Burgoon was driving east on the highway in a 2007 Chevy Colorado when she lost control of her car and spun into the path of an oncoming 2021 Chevy Silverado. On the spot, Burgoon was said to be dead.
She turned 20. The Silverado driver, who was 43 years old, had minor injuries and was taken to a hospital in Sedalia by ambulance.

In the US alone, over 6 million car accidents occur each year, resulting in nearly 40,000 fatalities. While the majority of these accidents are due to human error, there are a number of factors that can contribute to the likelihood of a crash.
