A crash on U.S. 54 two miles south of Laddonia claimed the lives of two residents from Licking. 

A Cabool man was killed Monday afternoon south of Willow Springs when his Jeep rear-ended a MoDOT truck.

Cpl. Daniel Hinten said the southbound 2005 MoDOT truck was in a left turn lane when it was struck by Norman M. Sutton, 86. The accident occurred on U.S. 63 just south of Willow Springs.

Sutton was pronounced dead at the scene by Howell County Coroner Tim Cherry. The MoDOT driver, Keith E. Pitts 37, of Willow Springs, was not injured. 

It was one of three fatalities investigated in Troop G on Monday — two were weather related.
