Two men have been killed after they were thrown from all-terrain vehicles in separate crashes in Missouri.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says 19-year-old Cole E. Steelman of Odessa was killed early Saturday when he lost control of the ATV he was driving and went off the edge of a Lafayette County road. The ATV became airborne and crashed into a creek bed. An 18-year-old woman who was riding on the ATV with him suffered serious injuries.

Another deadly crash happened Friday night in Henry County. The patrol says 49-year-old Edward W. Waters of Shawnee, Kan. died after he failed to make a curve, went off the side of a road and overturned.
