      Charges filed after rollover accident kills toddler

      Charges were filed against Blair Dority in the fatal rollover accident that claimed the life of a 2-year-old boy.
      Charges have been filed against a Roach Missouri woman after a rollover accident killed a 2-year-old boy. 30-year-old Blair Dority was charged with six counts of felony assault and one count of involuntary manslaughter.

      Just after 5:00 p.m. Saturday, Dority was driving a 2006 Ford pickup on West Branch Road near the Camden and Hickory County lines. The truck went off the left side of the road, hit a tree, and turned over.

      Seven passengers in the truck included 2-year-old Kaygyn Dority, 3-year-old Stormy Skinner, 6-year-old Madison Vaughn, and 7-year-old MIchael Vaughn, all from Roach. 16-year-old Micah Schmidt, 32-year-old Blaine Skinner and Shelby Willis, who's age is unknown, were also in the truck and are from Macks Creek.

      Two-year-old Kaygyn Dority was pronounced dead on the scene. No one was wearing a seatbelt and the children were not fastened in child safety seats. Madison Vaughn suffered serious injuries and was flown to Mercy Hospital in Springfield. The other children and adults suffered minor injuries to moderate injuries.

      The Camden County Sheriff's Department says bond for Dority was set at $150,000 cash only.
