At 7:28 a.m. in St. Francois County, 20-year-old Jasmine J. Cochran of Farmington was heading north on OO Road south of Busiek Cutoff Road when she exited the west side of the causeway into a 2003 Ford Taurus and struck a utility pole.

The patrol also reported, at 12:08 p.m. in Washington County, that a 2017 Kawasaki EN650 operated by Oigimer Torres Velazques, 25, of St. Louis was moving west on Route P east of Rosaray Drive when it failed to negotiate a right turn and crossed the center line of the roadway.
