A 33-year-old St. Francois County man has died after a two-vehicle crash Saturday night.

It happened shortly after 9:30 p.m. on MO Route 8, just east of Hunt Street.

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, David P. Swanguarim of Desloge was westbound on Route 8 when he tried to pass another vehicle and lost control of his car.

Troopers say the car hit the left side of a van, skidded sideways and went down a steep embankment.

Swanguarim was taken by EMS to a Farmington area hospital where he later died.

A passenger, Bobby E. Smith, 34, of Park Hills, was taken by helicopter to a St. Louis area hospital listed in serious condition.
