One killed in four-car crash along U.S. 65 in Springfield Saturday night
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - One person was killed, and another is seriously injured after a large crash on U.S. 65 near Sunshine Street in Springfield.
About 11 p.m. Saturday, a driver trying to merge onto the northbound lanes of U.S. 65 went too far and hit the concrete median. The impact with the median caused their car to get turned around. The driver then began driving southbound in the northbound lanes, and hit another car that was going the correct direction.
Two other drivers trying to slow down to avoid the wreck collided with the wreck.
The northbound lanes of U.S. 65 were closed for about three hours.
At this time, the names of those involved have not been released.
