Earlier: A Houston High School student was killed Friday night in a crash near a church on South U.S. 63, said the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Dead is A’ndrea J. White, 17, who was the driver of a 2001 Chrysler PT cruiser that was pulling onto the highway and was broadsided by a 2004 Dodge pickup operated by Anthony W. Carnal, 20, of Cabool, said Tpr. Curtis Hubbs of the patrol. The car went off the road and overturned. The truck came to rest in a ditch.

The accident near Souls Harbor Family Worship sent emergency units to the scene, including the Texas County Rescue Squad and Houston Rural Fire Department.

A passenger in the car, Lyndsey S. Tarrants, 17, had moderate injuries and was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital. Carnal’s injuries were minor, and he also was taken to TCMH.

Traffic packed up for a time following the 9:25 p.m. accident, which is Troop G’s 29th fatality of the year. A trio of patrol officers determined that Miss White was not wearing a seat belt, and Carnal was using one.

Service arrangements for Miss White are under the direction of Evans Funeral Home. She is the daughter of Mark and Pat White of Houston.

It’s the second time this year that a HHS student has been killed in a wreck.
