According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Tyler W. Pettigrew, 23, was driving north on state Route 23, north of state Route DD, when he slowed to turn right into a private drive. Another northbound vehicle driven by Andre J. Greene, 22, of Warrensburg, overtook and struck the rear of Pettigrew’s vehicle. The impact caused Pettigrew’s vehicle to travel off the right side of the road and overturn.
