A woman and four children from Columbia have died in a Highway 54 crash. The patrol says 30-year-old Radiance Wright lost control of her car near the Eldon exit (wed) night and flipped it. The dead children are Patience and Arleone Horton, Byra Brown, and Rondrea Anderson. At least three of the kids were younger than five years old.
A Miller County deputy and a firefighter were nearly hit by a drunk driver while working the scene of the crash Wednesday night. The two had to dive out of the way when the driver came speeding through the accident scene while they were directing traffic. He was pulled over and faces DWI charges. The two first responders weren’t hurt.
