The crash involved a westbound passenger car driven by 17 year old female of Joplin, and an eastbound motorcycle driven by David Oliver 31 years old also of Joplin. 

Mr. Oliver was transported to Freeman Hospital, where he later died as a result of the injuries sustained from the crash. The Joplin Police Department's Major Crash Team was contacted to come and investigate the crash.
