KOSHKONONG -- A Koshkonong man was killed in a two vehicle accident near Alton Sept. 27 at 5:45 p.m.

According to a report from Troop G of the Missouri Highway Patrol, dead is Gerald Andrews.

Trooper J.C. Howell said Andrews, 77, was driving a 900 Kubota Mule east on Route P, six miles west of Alton, when he was struck in the rear by a 2004 Dodge pickup truck driven by Frank Hentz, 35, of Mammoth Spring.

Hentz said as he crested a steep hill he was unable to avoid hitting the Andrews vehicle.

Howell reported both vehicles traveled off the road. Andrews was ejected from the Kubota. He was transported by Air Evac to St. John's Hospital in Springfield where he died.
