This morning a young man's life was taken after a single vehicle crash. According to authorities, a young 21-year-old male from Bonne Terre was killed around 1:00am Sunday after a vehicle crash in St. Francois County. The young male was traveling northbound in his 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier when his car veered off the right side of the road. The man veered off the road while trying to avoid hitting another car that veered off the left side of the road and into an embankment when he crashed himself. Emergency personnel responded to the scene of the crash and rushed the man to a local hospital. He was later pronounced dead at the hospital. Reportedly, the man was not wearing a seat belt during the time of the crash.
