According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Lindsey M. Emery, 26, of La Monte, was driving south on U.S. Highway 50 at state Route 127 when she struck the side of an eastbound vehicle driven by Tim Murphy, 49, while attempting to enter the eastbound lane. Murphy’s vehicle traveled off the right side of the road before coming to rest.
