A Missouri man is killed and two others are injured in a one-car crash in Texas County. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Thomas Franklin, 25, of Houston, was driving on Highway 17, about 8 miles north of Summersville, yesterday, when he failed to negotiate a curve in the road. Troopers say Franklin ran off the side of the road, hit a fence and overturned several times, throwing two passengers out of the car.
One of those passengers, Jason McGrath, 47, of Houston, was killed in the crash. Another, Daniel Ketchum, 21, also of Houston, suffered moderate injuries. The driver, Franklin, suffered serious injuries.
