CALDWELL COUNTY—One person died in an accident just before 2:30p.m. Tuesday in Caldwell County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported a 2002 Kenworth semi driven by Stanley W. Parker, 39, Oak Ridge, was eastbound on U.S. 36 one mile east of Cameron.

The semi lost the dual tires on the number 3 axel. The tires traveled across the median onto the westbound lanes and struck a westbound 1986 Ford Mustang driven by Jerry L. Graham, 72, Hamilton, head-on. The Mustang then traveled off the road and down an embankment.

Cameron EMS transported Graham to Cameron Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead. Parker was not injured. Both drivers were properly restrained at the time of the accident, according to the KHP.
