CSW BREAKING: Fatality Crash North of Odessa MO

Received at 4:52 a.m. Saturday morning was the report of a vehicle crash on Missouri or 'M' 131 highway about 3 miles north of Odessa- in west-central Lafayette county along I-70.

An Odessa police officer reports from the scene at 4:58 a.m.- the crash was on M-131 near Odessa Hills Road- and that it was a head-on with two occupants trapped in one vehicle's rolled-over crushed wreckage.

One of the occupants is declared dead at the scene 10 minutes later as Odessa medics order a medical helicopter for the remaining occupant and extrication gets underway.

That extrication is reported complete at 5:36 a.m. but it's nearly an hour after the crash was reported before the patient- "a large- about 300 pounds- 19-year-old male"  is loaded into the waiting Lifeflight med chopper and flown to a KC-MO hospital.

There's no word on occupant injuries in the other vehicle.

The Missouri Highway Patrol will be investigating the crash.
