WICHITA, Kansas - A Wichita woman is dead after a two vehicle crash north of Joplin.
The victim is Beth Adamson, 50, a social studies teacher at Mead Middle School.
The accident happened Monday shortly before noon 10 miles north of Joplin on Highway 43.
Beth was in an SUV driven by her husband John Adamson.
Investigators with the Missouri State Highway Patrol say John Adamson failed to stop at a stop sign and was broadsided by a pick-up driven by Gary Colson of Joplin.
All three were taken to Freeman Hospital West in Joplin.
Beth later died at the hospital, Colson had serious injuries and John Adamson received minor injuries.
Beth had been a teacher with USD 259 for 25 years. Most of those years were at Mueller. She moved to Mead Middle School in August 2012.
Toby Martin, the principal at Mead, says students were told of her death during first hour Tuesday morning and counselors are available for them.
Martin also released this statement:
"Beth Adamson was an amazing woman. She severed on the MTSS/Leadership team as well as 8th grade team leader (at Mead Middle School). She was genuine, caring and dedicated. She was one of the first staff members to arrive each day. Her thoughts were always of others and not herself. She handled students firmly and with respect and in turn they had great respect for her. She was a quiet force who could handle a tough situation in a calm manner. We have a void that will be difficult to fill."
