Illinois Woman Killed in Caldwell County Crash Sunday

A Lansing, Illinois woman was killed in a Caldwell County crash Sunday morning.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on U.S. 36 at Route D, two miles south of Kidder, when a vehicle driven by 25-year-old Kidder resident Cody L. Streu was heading southbound.

Troopers say Streu failed to yield to an eastbound vehicle driven by 67-year-old Lansing, Illinois resident John E. Mast while crossing U.S. 36.

Streu struck the side of Mast’s vehicle, sending both vehicles off the road, and overturning.

Mast was taken to Truman Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries.

A passenger in Mast’s vehicle, 65-year-old Leanne J. Mast, was taken to Liberty Hospital for treatment and pronounced dead later Sunday afternoon.

Streu suffered minor injuries and was treated on-scene.

Troopers say both Masts were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
