According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Mindy Jacobs, 37, was driving east on I-470 at Colbern Road, near the Missouri 291 merger, shortly after 10 a.m. Sunday when her 2005 Honda Accord hit a deer in the roadway and began to skid.
The Accord traveled off the roadway, struck a guardrail twice and overturned. Jacobs, who was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the Patrol report, was ejected from the car. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.
