A West Plains man was killed Saturday afternoon when his vehicle was broadsided by a tractor-trailer at the intersection of the U.S. 63 bypass and U.S. 160/Preacher Roe Boulevard in West Plains.
The West Plains Police Department responded to the crash and Public Information Officer John Murrell reported a 2011 Chevrolet Cruz driven northbound on the by pass by Craig D. Kelly made a left turn onto U.S. 160/Preacher Roe Boulevard, into the path of a southbound 1998 Volvo tractor-trailer by Douglas Vanvig of Ozark.
After the tractor-trailer collided with the vehicle, the tractor trailer ran off the road, Murrell said.
Kelly was taken to Ozarks Medical Center in West Plains with serious injuries and was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Vanvig was uninjured in the crash, according to police reports.
