Two people are dead after their vehicle goes airborne and hits a tree on Monday at 1:30 p.m., according to Missouri State Highway Patrol.
On Highway 5, five miles north of Ava, Owen Dobb, 25, tried to pass two vehicles and traveled off the left side of the roadway. The vehicle became airborne and struck a tree-killing both Dobb and the passenger, Rebecca Brandon, 34.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene.
