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.

  1. I feel so bad for his family. I hurts to lose a loved one, especially to a road because that means, someone else was involved too or they just really were hurt by something or took something or anything basically and sometimes you never even get a full description if you’re young like me. May he r.i.p.
