ONE DEAD ANOTHER HURT IN SALINE COUNTY ACCIDENT

A Sweet Springs woman was killed, and another had moderate injuries in an accident southwest of Malta Bend Sunday. The State Highway Patrol says 55-year-old Sherri Jones died when an SUV driven by 36-year-old Erica Jones slid through slush on Highway 127, about two-and-a-half miles south of Highway 65, around 12:35pm. The SUV went off the left side of the road, hit a sign post, became airborne, and hit two embankments before landing on its roof. Jones had moderate injuries and was taken to Marshall.
