Patricia Pennington-Sams told KYTV it happened near Branson West. Officials reported similar incidents in nearby Stone and Taney counties.

Over the weekend, a crash in Stone County left one person dead and two others hurt, The Springfield News-Leader reported. Investigators say the driver lost control of his car at a turn, when it skidded off the road and slammed into a tree early Saturday.
