JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a third person has died after a crash earlier this week in central Missouri.

The patrol says 20-year-old Anthony Bertucci, of Russellville, died Wednesday night at University Hospital.

He was a passenger in a car driven by 19-year-old Syndey Schrag that collided with another car on Tuesday night in Cole County. Schrag and another passenger in the car, 21-year-old Damani Winters of Jefferson City, died at the scene.

University Hospital officials say three people that were in the other car involved in the accident are still in serious condition.
