A Tarkio man died in a Tuesday afternoon accident in Rock Port.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports 63-year old Scott Price was fatally injured when he struck a vehicle in front of him on US 136 which had slowed to make a turn. Price struck the rear of the Peterbilt truck driven by a Rock Port resident. Price’s vehicle then skidded off the south side of the highway and came to rest on its wheels in a ditch.
Price’s body was transported to Davis Funeral Home in Fairfax. The other drive suffered minor injuries.
