Holt, MO - Creighton Russell Killed in Crash on I-35

Nov 27, 2020

Holt, MO (November 26, 2020) - One person was killed on Wednesday, November 25th in a two-vehicle accident on Interstate 35 in Clinton County.

Official reports state that, at about 11:30 p.m., the driver of a northbound 1997 Ford Ranger lost control of his vehicle, entered the median, and struck a guardrail. The force of the impact ejected the occupant from the Ranger where he was then struck by a southbound tractor-trailer.

The driver of the Ranger, 31-year-old Creighton Russell, a resident of Cameron, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neither the identity nor the condition of the tractor-trailer operator was provided.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mr. Creighton Russell, at this time.
