A Pittsburg, Kan., woman was killed in a one-car crash that took place at 4:40 a.m. on U.S. 60, three miles west of Neosho.
Coralee Maki, 39, was pronounced dead at the scene by a Newton County deputy coroner at 4:51 a.m. Her body was taken to Clark Funeral Home in Neosho.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the crash happened as a westbound 1994 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Maki went off of the left side of the road and struck and embankment, causing the car to overturn several times. Maki, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle, a patrol report stated.
