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.  John Becker, 72 of Nevada, and Roger Berning, 60 of El Dorado Springs, are both listed in serious condition.  Pamela Hoover, 47 of Nevada, was taken by ambulance to the Nevada hospital and was last listed with a moderate injury.

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.

"The truck trailer driver tried to avoid the passer byer that pulled out in front of him and in doing so he locked the breaks up and turned slightly, still struck the car but trying to avoid, seriously injuring people in the car, however, unfortunately went into the restaurant," says Cpl. James Wilde of the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Nevada firefighters responded along with city, county and state law officers.
