Farmington, Missouri Pedestrian Accident Causes Fatality

In a tragic accident Friday evening, Kaitlyn Rose Prater, of Farmington, Missouri was killed. Prater, tragically taken way too soon, was a young student at Farmington Middle School, where she excelled in softball and sports. Kaitlyn, or “KK,” as friends called her, will be laid to rest today following Friday’s pedestrian accident.

Local pages on social media sites featured fond memories of Prater from numerous friends, family members, and loved ones over the holiday weekend.  Those who didn’t know Kaitlyn personally remember her as a young softball player who wore #23, and was a member of the Blue Angels girl’s softball team.

Prater passed away shortly after being struck by a vehicle while walking along Business 32, near Karsch Boulevard in Farmington, Missouri on Friday evening.  According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Kaitlyn was crossing a cross walk across Karsch Boulevard, when she was struck by an eastbound 2011 Nissam Altima. Prater was transported to Parkland Health Center by ambulance, but succumbed to her critical injuries before recieving treatment.

Kaitlyn’s funeral service is taking place this afteroon in the C.Z. Boyer Chapel in Desloge. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials are directed towards their attention.
