Fatal Boone County Crash

Posted by Eagle Staff on November 19, 2012

A car crash claims the life of a Columbia man. Saturday night, 32-year-old Anthony Peccoux was driving on Highway 63 near the airport exit when he went off the side of the road and slammed into a concrete culvert. He died less than an hour later at a nearby hospital.

This is the second death on Highway 63 between Columbia and Jefferson City in less than a week. A teenager from Ashland also died in a one-car accident, after going off the side of the road and crashing south of his hometown on Wednesday afternoon.
