Multiple witnesses told authorities that two men in separate vehicles were driving recklessly in an apparent road rage incident around 3:45 p.m. on northbound Highway 61. Joseph Faupel, who was driving a Dodge Charger, was using the far right turn lane for Highway W in an attempt to pass Daniel Glennon Loeffler, who was driving a Chevrolet Equinox, authorities said. When Loeffler sped up to prevent Faupel from passing, Faupel veered to the left, hitting Loeffler's vehicle, according to authorities. Loeffler then lost control of his vehicle, which struck a Honda CRV in the lane to his left, the Missouri Highway Patrol said. The Honda CRV veered off the road, striking a telephone pole and flipping over. A 69-year-old female passenger in the CRV was killed and the driver, 70, suffered serious injuries, the highway patrol report said.
