The Eugene man lost control and the vehicle went off the left side of the road into the median and down a hill. The Chevrolet overturned as it traveled down the hill and ended up on its top in cedar creek. Berendzen was not wearing his seat belt and died in the crash. The Missouri state highway patrol has not said if the Eugene man drowned or was killed in the impact but he was pronounced dead on scene. This is fatality number 29 for highway patrol troop F in 2010.
