It happened along MO-291 just north of Kidwell Road at approximately 8:22 p.m.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol online crash report says Alec Rush struck a deer in the southbound lanes then crossed over the center line and hit a car heading north head on. Emergency crews took Rush to the hospital, but he died from his injuries just before 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Both Rush and the other driver were wearing their seat belts. The driver of the second vehicle was taken to the hospital to be treated for moderate injuries.
It is with extremely heavy hearts that we are sharing that SCA 2016 graduate Alec Rush passed away early this morning from injuries sustained in a car accident last night.
Alec was dearly loved by all who knew him. He has coached elementary and junior high soccer and junior high track for the last two years and was preparing to one day be a history teacher. He was a positive influence to our students and set a wonderful and godly example. He had a deep relationship with the Lord and was passionate in his call to serve students. His smile lit up our lives, classrooms and hallways at SCA. He loved Summit Christian Academy and each of the students he coached here! Please keep his family in your prayers during this time as well as the students, faculty and staff that are grieving the loss of an incredible former student, coach, friend and mentor. We love you ALEC! source
