A man was killed in a deadly crash in Anderson County on Friday evening.

A Potosi man died in a two vehicle crash Friday afternoon at 4:11 p.m. off Highway 185 in Washington County.

A Potosi man was killed Friday afternoon when a pickup truck crossed into the other lane of Missouri 185 and struck his auto, the Missouri Highway Patrol said. It left the roadway to the east, traveled through the grass and hit a concrete culvert and the milepost 92 sign, the report says. The driver of the truck then over-corrected and re-entered the highway, hitting a Chevrolet Tracker.


The driver of the second vehicle, Andrew Metcalf was pronounced dead on scene.

Seat belt usage by those in both vehicles is still under investigation, according to the KHP.
