When motorists choose to drive recklessly on Missouri highways, they risk injuring or killing others. Often, dangerous road conditions and inebriated drivers are a toxic recipe for disaster. A young teenager was recently killed in a fatal accident while waiting at a bus stop after being hit by an oncoming car.
The early morning accident took place shortly before sunrise on a local highway. The boy was apparently waiting by the street for his bus to arrive when the vehicle struck him. Authorities believe that street racing in poor weather conditions contributed to the cause of the accident.
