Rescue personnel were called Sunday to a report of a vehicle in the river with one occupant.

Kimberly M. Samel of Licking was killed today when the vehicle she was driving on Highway C in Dent County went off the road and overturned.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Samel, 33, was traveling southbound three miles north of Lennox at 9:45 a.m. when the incident occurred. She apparently drove her 2001 Chrysler van off the right side of the roadway, over-corrected and ran off the left side before the van rolled several times and came to rest in a field.

Samel was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the van. She was transported to Salem Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
