HARRISON COUNTY, Mo.—An icy road results in the death of an out-of-state teen in Harrison County Friday afternoon.
According to Troop H of the highway patrol, 18-year-old Tucker J. Depew, of Minnesota, drove northbound on I-35 near Bethany. Depew lost control of the wheel when he drove over a patch of ice. This forced his vehicle off the road and down an embankment. The teen’s vehicle overturned several times and ejected him. Depew died at the scene. Missouri Highway Patrol says the young driver failed to wear a seat-belt.
