A 17-year-old Sedalia girl was seriously injured in an accident that killed a Goodson, MO man just north of Buffalo on February 27.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a 2004 Hyundai Elantra, driven by 49-year-old Oran Caudle of Goodson, MO, crossed the center line of US 65. Caudle's vehicle struck a 2003 Audi A4, driven by 17-year-old Kiara Irwin of Sedalia. Caudle was pronounced dead at the scene by the Dallas County Coroner. Irwin was taken to Mercy Hospital in Springfield for treatment.

This is the 6th fatality for the Missouri State Highway Patrol's Troop D region in February, and the region's 12th fatality for 2019. Both vehicles were totaled in the accident.
