Missouri State Highway Patrol reported the crash occurred at 7:23 a.m. on Butler County Road 441, two miles west of Poplar Bluff.

Gabrielle L. Thresher, 31, of Poplar Bluff was northbound when her 2011 Chevy Impala ran off the right side of the roadway and struck a tree, according to the online crash report.
