According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, at 2:18 p.m. Wednesday, Robert Drennen, 39, of Richwoods, was driving a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer west on Project Road west of Fairview Church Road when he crossed the centerline and sideswiped a 1999 Volkswagon Beetle driven by Edward Jones, 53, of Cadet. 

The Blazer went off the right side of the road. Drennen over-corrected and the vehicle began to skid, overturning multiple times and ejecting Drennen.
