A section of Highway 47 in Lincoln County, Missouri is known to be one of the most dangerous in the area. On Saturday evening, a woman from Tennessee crossed the middle line in her SUV and collided head on with a young family traveling in a minivan. The driver was killed along with a 22-year-old father and his 1-year-old son that were in the other vehicle. The only survivor is the mother and wife of the family in the minivan. She is now pleading for a change in the construction of the highway. The section of the road where the accident occurred is very narrow and lacking much of a shoulder. It also has several curves and hills making it difficult to see or difficult to react to a vehicle that may cross the center line.
