  • Driver dies trying to avoid dead deer in Imperial
On Wednesday morning, Keith A. Labitska was driving north on I-55 in his 2005 Chevy Malibu, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The 41-year-old from Imperial saw a dead deer in the roadway near the Imperial Main exit just after 8 am.

He swerved off to the right, left the road and struck a bridge.

He was pronounced dead shortly thereafter.

The MSHP's report states that Labitska was wearing his seat belt.
