LINCOLN COUNTY, Mo. (KMOX) – A seven-year-old Wright City girl did not survive a crash, Saturday night, along Route WW in Lincoln County.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says Ryanna Powell died from injuries suffered when her minivan went off the left side of the roadway, became airborne, and hit a tree.

Troopers say neither Ryanna Powell nor the van’s driver, 35-year-old Alice Powell of Wright City, were wearing safety belts.

Alice Powell suffered moderate injuries and was transported to a hospital for treatment.
