Missouri interstates and highways can be a challenge to navigate under the best of circumstances. Accidents and road construction can add to the congestion and need to drive cautiously.

Pedestrian accidents: Fatal crash along Missouri 273

Missouri authorities in Platte City are investigating an accident that claimed the life of a 62-year-old woman after extensive personal injury.
