A third vehicle, driven by Keith Heymeyer, 52, Morrison, struck Hubecky in the side.

Hubecky was killed while her daughter, Jacqueline Herndon, 39, Linn, suffered serious injuries.

Herndon and Laws were taken to University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia for treatment. Laws was listed in critical condition and Herndon was listed in serious condition.

A patrol crash investigation team gathered evidence at the site and is investigating what happened.

Traffic was backed up for several miles after the crash and it took most of the Monday morning rush hour for the road to be completely cleared...

It is unknown how long it will be before the crash team comes out with its final report.
