  • A Granby man was killed Thursday evening when his dump truck overturned in an accident near Diamond.
    The Missouri State Highway Patrol says that at around 5 p.m. Alan Sims, 49, Granby was northbound on State Highway 59 in a 1988 Freightliner dump truck when a southbound 2005 Cadillac CTS driven by Austin Bunnel, 16, Carthage, crossed the center line just south of Diamond and hit Sims' dump truck head-on. The dumptruck went off the road and overturned.
    Sims was pronounced dead on the scene by Newton County Coroner Mark Bridges. Bunnel sustained serious injuries and was transported to Freeman West Hospital in Joplin. Debris from the head-on collision struck a third vehicle, a 2000 Ford Mustang driven by Tina Connelly, 27, of Wyandotte, Okla. Connelly was not listed as injured.
