A Polo, Mo., man was killed Monday in a two-vehicle accident in rural Lafayette County, according the Missouri Highway Patrol.
Dalton S. Rardon, 22, died at the scene. The accident occurred just after 8 a.m. on Missouri 13, just north of Garrison Road.
Rardon was traveling south when his vehicle crossed the center line and struck a northbound vehicle, said highway patrol Sgt. Collin M. Stosberg.
Rardon’s vehicle went off the right side of the road. He was ejected. The other vehicle also traveled off the side of the road, and it caught fire. That driver, Katie L. Reagan, 33, of Corder, Mo., was taken to Lafayette Regional Hospital. Her condition was unavailable.
The accident remains under investigation, Stosberg said.
