Etoile man killed while waiting for help

CAMERON, Mo. (AP) - An Etoile man was killed Wednesday night on an Interstate 35 exit ramp south of Cameron, Missouri, while waiting for help moving his pickup truck, which was stuck in the snow.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 77-year-old Thurman Smith of Etoile, was standing at the rear of his vehicle when a car slid off the highway and struck him, then his vehicle.

The patrol says 22-year-old Christopher Mazur of Cameron lost control of his 2007 Ford Mustang on the ice- and snow-covered interstate and ran into Smith and his vehicle.
