One man is dead following a two-vehicle accident on Saturday night in Jefferson County.

Elija Montgomery-Smith, 23, and Karisa Evans, 22, were driving in the northbound lanes of US-67 on March 4. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said around 8:14 p.m., Smith's vehicle, a 1998 Saturn, traveled into the path of a second vehicle. This caused the second vehicle to strike Smith's car on the left side.

The driver of the second vehicle, Gregory Schug, traveled into a median and struck a road sign after coming into contact with Smith.

Smith was transported to the hospital, but was pronounced dead at 1:18 a.m., Saturday morning.

The condition of Evans and Schug are not known at this point.
