SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Records show a man who drove into five people outside an elementary school in southwest Missouri doesn’t have a driver’s license.
Springfield police say 35-year-old Lonnie Yeager struck three students and two staff members outside Campbell Elementary school on Monday.
A Missouri Department of Revenue spokesman tells the Springfield News-Leader that Yeager doesn’t have a driver’s license in any state in the U.S.
Police say a 10-year-old boy died from injuries from the collision. The other two children are in stable condition, while the two employees have non-life-threatening injuries.
