Boonville woman killed in I-70 crash at Rocheport bridge

A Boonville woman is dead after a crash at the Missouri River Bridge.

Troopers said Chantel Winfield, 35, lost control of her car on the icy roads on Wednesday morning. Her car hit a concrete barrier and returned to the road.

While it was still in motion, Winfield tried to get out of her car when it was hit by a semi.

It slid off the road and she was ejected from the car. Her body was recovered on land below the bridge.

A small amount of wintry precipitation caused several slide-offs and crashes all over mid-Missouri, starting early Wednesday morning.
