A Versailles man was killed Saturday when he was thrown off the motorcycle he was driving as it encountered a horse-drawn buggy on a Moniteau County road.
The Missouri Highway Patrol reports Samuel D. Schreck, 56, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 1:13 p.m. crash on Route E near Hazel Dell Road.
Eric J. Nolt, 27, of Latham, was driving the buggy westbound when Schreck's eastbound motorcycle spooked the horse, which then pulled the buggy into the lane ahead of the motorcycle. The bike struck the horse and Schreck was ejected.
The report does not list any injuries for Nolt.
