DE SOTO, Mo. (AP) -- A 40-year-old Jefferson County woman died in a one-car accident Tuesday night after veering off the road and hitting a tree.
The Missouri Highway Patrol identified the victim as Heather M. Michael. She was driving west on state Highway 110 about 7 p.m. when she lost control of the car. Michael was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital Jefferson one hour later.
The patrol says Michael was not wearing a seatbelt.
