Brookfield Man Killed in Livingston County Crash Thursday Afternoon

A Brookfield man died in a Livingston County crash Thursday afternoon.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports the accident occurred around 4:35 Thursday afternoon on U.S. 36, three miles west of Chillicothe, as 60-year-old Joseph D. Anderson drove eastbound.

Troopers say Anderson’s 2007 Dodge Ram experienced an issue, traveled off the right side of the road, struck a guardrail, and traveled along the guardrail before coming to a rest.

Authorities say the Dodge ejected Anderson during the crash, and he came to a rest in the eastbound lane.

Doctors pronounced Anderson dead at 5:13 Thursday afternoon at Hedrick Medical Center.
