Multiple sources have confirmed the identities of the two people who lost their lives in the four-vehicle accident in Gray Summit.
The young man who was killed in an accident in his pick-up truck, which was crushed between a school bus and a semi, was 19-year-old Daniel Schatz. Schatz was a graduate of Sullivan High School, and spent last year as a backup quarterback on the University of Missouri football team. He joined the team as a walk-on.
Daniel is the son of Dave Schatz, who just won the Republican primary for the State Representative seat in Missouri’s 111th District.
The female student from the St. James School District is Jessica Brinker. There is already a memorial site for her on facebook.
