Police have identified the driver who died in a car accident on Interstate-44 yesterday.
Morgan Ciota was driving eastbound on 44 near the Jefferson exit when she lost control of her car. The driver of a semi truck saw her car start to spin and the driver tried to avoid Ciota. But the semi slid into the car. When emergency crews arrived they pronounced Ciota dead on the scene.
Police believe that speed may have been a factor in the accident.
The snow-covered roads have turned deadly in Missouri.
