St. James, MO (KSDK) - A motorcyclist was killed Wednesday evening after colliding with the steel cable median that separates the lanes of Interstate 44 west of St. James in Phelps County.
Missouri Highway Patrol officials say 46 year old Kevin Keeney of St. James was westbound on the interstate when he ran off the left side of the road and crashed into the cables. The impact threw the victim from the motorcycle.
