An Independence man died early Monday when he crashed his 2000 Ford Mustang in Clinton County.

Brandon Scott, 28, was pronounced dead just before 2 a.m. by the Clinton County coroner.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that Scott was heading north on Route A in Turney and failed to stop at the T intersection with Route H. He ran off the north edge of the intersection and hit a hedge post. The Mustang came to a rest on the driver's side. Scott was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol reported.
