GREENE COUNTY —One person died in an accident just after 11a.m. Tuesday in Greene County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported a 2013 Chevy Equinox driven by Martha B. Martin, 89, Brookline, was eastbound in the 2700 Block of South Roundhill Road in Brookline.

Her son Paul S. Martin, 59, was standing outside the Chevy and reached inside the vehicle to assist the driver with removing the vehicle from park.

The driver had her foot on the accelerator. When it was placed out of park the SUV dragged the pedestrian. When he fell off, the SUV struck him and then crashed into a storm shelter.

EMS transported Martin to Mercy Springfield where he died. Martha Martin refused treatment. She was not wearing a seat belt, according to the MSHP.

KANSAS CITY (AP) — A series of shootings has left four people dead in Kansas City over 24 hours as concerns mount about violent crime in the state's two largest cities.

After Missouri Gov. Mike Parson met with leaders in St. Louis to discuss the problem, two people were killed around 9:45 p.m. Tuesday inside an apartment in southern Kansas City.

The scene of that shooting is less than 1 mile from where a shot-up Ford Mustang crashed into a parked vehicle about six hours earlier. Police say the driver was taken to a hospital in critical condition and the passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The fourth victim was killed late Monday. He was identified Tuesday as 41-year-old Antwain Foster. None of the other victims have been identified.
