A woman is dead after a crash in Cherokee County. According to the Kansas Highway Patrol, a Chevy Silverado driven by 18-year-old Skylar Cauble of Joplin was traveling westbound on U.S. 160 west of Columbus late last week. Cauble failed to negotiate a gradual curve by 63rd road, overcorrected, and crashed into a Grand Marquis driven by 67-year-old Violet Knowles of Joplin. Knowles was pronounced dead at the scene. KHP says she was wearing a seatbelt but it was inadequately utilized. Cauble received a suspected minor injury while 17-year-old Macy Pinnegar of Columbus who was riding with Cauble was taken to the hospital with a suspected serious injury.
