One person was killed and another seriously injured in a Benton County car crash Tuesday night.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Kathy L. Wilson, 45, of Clinton was killed in an accident on Highway 7 near Bell Island Road.

Troopers say a car driven by Timothy J. Brown, 26, of Clinton crossed the center line on the highway and struck Wilson's car head-on. The collision caused Wilson's car to travel off the road and hit a tree.

Wilson was flown to Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach where she was pronounced dead.

Brown suffered serious injuries and was flown to Research Hospital in Kansas City.
