by: Kyle Derringer, Ozarks First

A Nixa woman was killed during a head-on collision on Highway 14, two miles west of Nixa early Monday afternoon.

A 2005 Dodge Neon was traveling Eastbound and failed to make a turn in the road, striking a propane truck that was heading the opposite direction head-on, a report from Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

Jessica Vincent, 37, of Nixa was pronounced dead at Cox South in Springfield shortly after. Vincent was not wearing a seat belt, the report said.

The driver of the propane truck did not sustain injuries.

This is Troop D’s 133rd fatal accident of 2018.
