WASHINGTON, Mo.—A 90-year-old Franklin County man is dead after his car was hit by a tractor-trailer near Washington.
The Missouri Highway Patrol identified the driver as Raymond Kastendieck. The Washington Missourian reports that the crash happened Monday afternoon on State Route 47.
Kastendieck’s 2004 Dodge Stratus collided with the tractor-trailer after the elderly driver lost control of his car, which struck a guardrail and then crossed into the opposite lane.
The patrol says the tractor-trailer struck the passenger side of Kastendieck’s car, pushing it off the road and down an embankment.
Kastendieck was not wearing a seat belt and was pronounced dead at the scene.
