SEMO man killed in rollover crash

BERNIE, MO (KAIT) –  An early morning car crash claimed the life of a Region 8 man.

The crash happened just after 6:30 Monday morning on Missouri 153, about five miles east of Bernie.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the crash occurred when a 2007 Pontiac driven by 19-year-old Holly Pruitt of Lilbourn pulled into the path of a 1995 Jeep driven by 37-year-old Jonithan Dodson of Catron.

Both cars ran off the road and Dodson's Jeep overturned.  Troopers say Dodson, who was not wearing a seat belt, was pronounced dead at the scene by Stoddard County Coroner Aaron Mathis.

Pruitt, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken to Southeast Medical Center in Cape Girardeau with moderate injuries.
