A 21-year-old St. Clair man was killed Wednesday morning when he was involved in a two-vehicle crash on Highway PP just outside of the city.

The Missouri Highway patrol stated in its online report that Dale G. Sullinger was pronounced dead at Mercy Hospital Washington following the 10 a.m. crash on Highway PP at Charles Drive.

According to the highway patrol, Sullinger was riding a 2007 Kawasaki ZX 1000 northbound on Highway PP and cresting a hill before Charles Drive when he hit a 2002 Ford Explorer driven by Lewis O. Kinstler, 76, of St. Clair.

Kinstler was westbound traveling from one private drive to another and crossing Highway PP. The patrol stated he had stopped on the highway and when Sullinger crested the hill, his motorcycle collided with the Explorer.

Sullinger and his bike then traveled off the left side of the road and struck a utility pole, where he was thrown off the bike.

He was wearing a helmet.

Kinstler was not injured.
