2 men die after being thrown from van

A Rockville man and a Clinton man both have died in a one-vehicle crash that injured seven other people on Friday night in southeastern Missouri.

Richard L. Kiger, 55, of Clinton, and Roger L. Kiger, 57, of Rockville, both were pronounced dead at the scene at 11:15 p.m. by the Mississippi County coroner.

They were ejected from a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette driven by Janet L. Fortner, 51, of Montezuma.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that Fortner was driving northbound when the van went off the left side of the road. The driver overcorrected and the van went off the road, overturning and ejecting its occupants.

Fortner was airlifted to Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, along with passengers Bonnie J. Hastings, 53, of Clinton, and Kim Johnson, age unknown, of Clinton.

Also ejected were Glenn L. Kiger, 62, of Rockville, and Lenora K. Kiger, 52, of Clinton. Both were transported by ambulance to St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau.

Two children in the vehicle, Betty Johnson, 1, and Jacob Johnson, age unknown, were restrained in child seats. They were also transported to St. Francis Medical Center.
