A man from High Ridge died in an auto accident in Jefferson County Wednesday night.
The Highway Patrol reports that 21-year-old Jordan Nation-Webb was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis early Thursday morning after an accident on westbound Route F east of Lake Tekakwitha.
Nation-Webb was the passenger with 22-year-old Jay Clark in his 2004 Ford Mustang when Clark did not slow down for the conditions.
The car slid off the left side of the roadway and struck a metal post and a tree.
Clark did survive the accident but suffered moderate injuries. He was taken to Mercy Hospital for treatment.
