Updated at 9:40 PM CST: The Missouri Highway Patrol says Joseph Cole, 54 of Nevada, is dead after a semi-truck crashed into a diner located just off of Highway 71.
In their crash report, the Missouri Highway Patrol says a medical helicopter took two other people to Joplin's Freeman hospital.

Investigators say a car at the intersection of Osage and Atlantic pulled from a stop sign into the path of the semi. The truck attempted to avoid the car but still hit it, then crashed into the Quick Dine restaurant striking several patrons.
