HOLT COUNTY, MO – A 16-year old male was killed in an early evening accident in Holt County on Sunday.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the crash occurred around 6:40 pm on I-29. Investigators say 58-year old Jason Fedak of Spring, Texas attempted to merge his semi into the passing lane and struck the rear passenger door of a vehicle driven by 27-year old Sarah Lockridge of Cape Girardeau, causing her vehicle to cross the median into the opposite lane where it was struck by another vehicle before skidding off the side of the interstate and striking a tree.

The 16-year old boy from Cape Girardeau was a passenger in Lockridge’s vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene. A 13-year old male passenger, also from Cape Girardeau, refused treatment for minor injuries. Lockridge was seriously injured and taken to Mosaic Life Care in St. Joseph.
