  • An Eldon man has died following a one vehicle crash late Friday evening.
    Kristopher Ryder, 20, was a passenger in a 2001 Dodge driven by Joseph Christian, 26, also of Eldon. Christian failed to negotiate a curve in Route M south of Burkle Pond Road in Miller County. The pickup truck traveled off the right side of the road, struck a ditch and overturned.
    Ryder was thrown from the vehicle in the incident. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Miller County Coroner Rick Callahan. Three other passengers sustained injuries in the crash. One passenger, Baylee Bledsoe, 17, of Eldon, sustained moderate injuries and was taken by helicopter to University Hospital in Columbia.
    According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, one of the five occupants of the vehicle was wearing a seat belt. That passenger sustained minor injuries.
    This is Troop F's second fatality in May and 17th in 2014.
