Nevada, MO Man Killed in Multi-Trailer Crash

Updated:

A Nevada, MO man is killed in a crash on US 54.

The crash happened around 9:40 p.m. on May 9th just east of Dederick in Vernon County, MO.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a Dodge truck was pulling a small horse trailer heading east on US 54 when it became unhooked and traveled into the oncoming lane of traffic. The horse trailer collided head-on with another pickup truck pulling a trailer in the opposite direction, driven by Ronald Hughes. Troopers say the horse trailer flipped over the truck and wedged between the pickup and trailer forcing all three off the road.

The Vernon County Coroner says 64-year-old Ronald Hughes died at the scene. The Highway Patrol says multiple horses were killed. No other injuries were reported.

This is MSHP Troop D's 33rd fatal crash in 2018.
