Union County Deputies, the coroner and multiple helicopters responded to the scene of a fatal collision on Buffalo West Springs Highway.

The collision occurred in Union County on Buffalo West Springs Highway at Peakeville Road around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday. Two vehicles were involved.

The roadway was blocked as crews worked to assess the scene.

Troopers said one vehicle, a 2011 Toyota, was turning left into a driveway when a 2006 Toyota pulled around in an attempt to pass the other car and instead crashed into the car. The 2006 Toyota then ran off the left side of the road , hit a utility pole and struck a tree.

The 27-year-old male driver of the 2006 Toyota and male passenger were taken to the hospital with injuries. A second passenger died at the scene.

The coroner identified the decedent as 28-year-old Scott Charles Darling of Buffalo.

Troopers said no one in the 2006 Toyota was wearing a seat belt.

The driver of the 2011 Toyota, a 43-year-old Buffalo man, was also injured and taken to the hospital.

Troopers said charges are pending.
