  • A man died in a car that crashed into a tree in Riverview Park at 2:11 p.m. Friday, July 25.
    Leland G. Brown, 57, of Hannibal, was pronounced dead at the scene at 3 p.m. July 25 by Marion County Coroner Darrell McCoy.
    His cause of death was not determined, McCoy said.
    An autopsy was scheduled for today, July 26, in Columbia, McCoy reported. It could take up to a few weeks for the autopsy report to be completed, McCoy said.
    The death was not being investigated as foul play, McCoy said.
    The car driven by the victim went off the road across from the driveway at the Hannibal Water Treatment Plant in Riverview Park.
    The car was traveling at a high rate of speed when it hit a tree in the woods, McCoy said.
    The Hannibal Fire Department used its extrication equipment to free the man from the car.
    The Hannibal Police Department and Marion County Ambulance District also responded to the scene.
    The accident was under investigation Friday by the Hannibal Police Department and Marion County coroner’s office.
