Authorities say a Jefferson City man was killed when he hit a semi head-on yesterday afternoon in Ralls county. It happened about 3:45pm on Route 19 near the Perry Junction. Troopers say 40-year old Jason Wood was southbound and crossed the center line, plowing his 2006 Infiniti into the nose of the northbound semi. The impact was so severe it totaled the semi. The car burst into flames, and Wood was killed instantly. The semi driver was airlifted to Columbia in serious condition.
