Five Killed in July 4th Crash

A two-vehicle crash in Archie, Missouri claimed the lives of five people on the Independence day holiday. Among the deceased were three young children.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol report, the crash took place Thursday afternoon when the victims’ vehicle ran off of Cass Country Road (east of Archie), over-corrected and skidded across the road in a sideways motion. Their vehicle then struck a second vehicle, which was eastbound on Country Road.

The Highway Patrol recorded that victims included 22 year-old Aleah Lucas, 8 year-old Anna Rittermeyer, 32 year-old Jason Rittermeyer, 9 year-old Sage Rittermeyer, and 10 year-old Noah Rittermeyer. The Rittermeyer’s were all residents of Archie, Missouri, while Lucas was from Olathe, Kansas.

According to the report, the driver of the victim’s vehicle and one of the children were not wearing a seatbelt and were ejected from the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle that was struck by the over-correcting car sustained minor injuries.
