According to Fox 4 Kansas City, former NASCAR Cup Series driver Clint Bowyer was involved in a deadly accident. The police investigation ended this week.
The accident happened on Sunday, June 5th. The news report said the incident happened before 9 pm local time on a ramp U.S. 54 and Missouri Highway 242 near Osage Beach, Missouri.
A 47-year-old woman died at the scene. She was later identified as Mary Simmons.
The Lake Ozark Police Department police report suggested that Bowyer was approaching the ramp when Simmons was walking on the ramp. Once Bowyer realized that he hit something, he immediately stopped his car.
He then went to look at what he hit and found that he had hit a woman. He called 911.
Once the police arrived on the scene, he took them to where the woman was found from the impact of the accident. Simmons died at the scene.
In their investigation, the police found that Bowyer was not impaired at the time of the accident. He also blew a .000 on a breathalyzer.
His vehicle also had heavy damage.
The police found methamphetamine in Simmons’s belongings. The report said it is believed that she was on drugs at the time of the accident.
“Anyone that knows me, knows that family is everything to me,” Bowyer said to Fox 4 KC. “My thoughts and prayers are with the family and loved ones of Ms. Simmons. This is a very difficult time for my family and I, please respect our privacy as we move forward.”
Bowyer — who is a NASCAR on FOX broadcaster — missed the Sonoma race from the booth. The accident came hours after the Cup Series had its first-ever race at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway near St. Louis.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved.
