Two people killed in U.S. 24 crash

Two people were killed in a crash on U.S. 24, one mile east of Moberly, late Monday night. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a Kenworth Tractor Trailer was stopped partially off the roadway, with a towed unit blocking both lanes of U.S. 24, when a Freightliner tractor trailer hit the Kenworth towed unit, and the driver of the Kenworth, who was outside of the Kenworth tractor. The driver of the Freightliner, 61 year old Michael Fenner of Jackson, Mississippi, was killed. Also, 31-year-old Kaysamual Blanks of Rancho Cordova, California, associated with the Kenworth, was killed.
