A 30-year-old Fulton man was killed in a one-vehicle accident on U.S. 54 just north of Kingdom City early Wednesday morning, according to a Missouri Highway Patrol crash report.
The wreck occurred at 7:50 a.m. Wednesday on U.S. 54 at County Road 240. Cody R. Evans was driving westbound in a 2006 Ford Ranger when the vehicle traveled off the left side of the road, returned to the highway and then overturned, ejecting Evans.
Evans was taken by emergency medical services to University Hospital in Columbia, where he was pronounced dead. It was Highway Patrol Troop F's seventh fatality in April and 16th for the year.
Evans was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. His vehicle was totaled.
