A double vehicle crash in St. Francois County recently resulted in the death of one man.
The accident occurred at 9:35 p.m. on Missouri Route 8, when David Swanguarim, 33, of Desloge, Mo. attempted to pass another car. Swanguarium reportedly lost control of his 1988 Chevy Cavalier, skidded sideways, and struck the front of the other vehicle. According to officials, he then traveled off the side of the roadway and down a steep embankment.
Shortly after being taken to Mineral Area Hospital the Swanguarim was pronounced dead. His passenger was rushed to a local hospital in serious condition.
It has been reported that neither victim was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident.
Stories like these should remind drivers how important it is to take every precautionary measure when operating a motor vehicle. In the event that an accident happens, wearing a seatbelt can not only prevent much damage, but could also save your life.
