CAMDEN COUNTY —One person died in an accident just before 2p.m. Monday in Camden County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported a 2012 Mazda 6 driven by Tracy M. Kemp, 60, Fulton, was northbound on MO 5 just north of the Business 5 overpass. The Mazda rear-ended a 1990 Ford F150 driven by Tommy D. Ward, 70, Camdenton.

The impact pushed the Ford off the road where it struck an embankment, overturned and the driver was ejected.

Ward was pronounced dead at the scene and was transported to Hedges Funeral Home. Kemp was not injured.

Ward was not wearing a seat belt, according to the MSHP.
