CABOOL, Mo. — The Missouri Highway Patrol says two people died in an accident caused by icy conditions in southwest Missouri.

The accident happened Sunday night on a bridge on Highway 63 about five miles north of Cabool in Texas County.

Fifteen-year-old Alex Greuter and 37-year-old Patricia Wiest, both of Cabool, died at the scene.

The patrol says the car they were riding in went out of control on an ice-covered bridge and slid into the path of a U-Haul truck.  Both drivers survived but the driver of the victims’ car was taken to the hospital in serious condition.
