Boonville Township, MO (March 21, 2022) – One man has lost his life as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Cooper County. At around 4:50 p.m., on March 18, emergency crews were requested on-site at a crash on Interstate 70.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2022 Freightliner Cascadia was stopped in traffic on the eastbound side of Interstate 70 near mile marker 102.8. A 2012 Toyota Prius was stopped behind the Freightliner. For unknown reasons, a 2007 Volvo Conventional tractor was unable to stop. As a result, the vehicle crashed into the Prius. The Prius then struck the center median. The Volvo then struck the Freightliner. The impact of the crash forced the Freightliner off the roadway causing it to turn onto its side.
Three people involved in the crash were injured. EMS transported 33-year-old Katherine Clagett, 48-year-old Noel Moise, and 55-year-old Momchil Petrov IV to University Hospital for emergency medical care. Authorities confirmed that Petrov succumbed to his injuries after arriving.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Noel Moise and Katherine Clagett at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Momchil Petrov IV. Our thoughts are with them at this time.
