The victim in a fatal accident that occurred Friday on I-70 has been identified.

A Boone County medical examiner pronounced 35-year-old Anita Pierden dead at the scene. Her passenger suffered serious injuries.

The Kansas City resident was travelling eastbound on I-70 with a passenger when Keaunia Brooks traveled into the median through the cable barrier and struck Pierden head on.

Brooks and her passenger experienced serious injuries, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

The three women were transported to a local hospital.

This is Troop F's 41st fatality of the year, the 8th for the month of Sept.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Pierden's family with expenses.
