A 49-year-old man from Moscow Mills was killed in a crash Saturday evening on Highway 61 in Lincoln County.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, John J. Campbell was driving a 1999 Ford F-150 southbound on the ramp from Highway 61 to Route C at a high rate of speed. He overcorrected, went off the left side of the road, went across the ramp to the right side of the road, and struck a MoDOT sign.
The truck then travelled down a steep embankment and overturned.
Campbell, who was partially ejected, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a safety device.
