A 19-year-old Northwest Missouri State University student from Liberty died early Sunday after she was struck by a vehicle while walking out of a Maryville, Mo., bar and grill.

Morgan McCoy, a sophomore elementary education major, was injured when a vehicle crashed into The Palms at 422 N. Buchanan St. in Maryville about 12:40 a.m., according to a news release from the university.

McCoy was rushed to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. The driver was taken into custody.

The Nodaway County prosecutor charged the driver, Alex A. Catterson, 21, of Maryville, with involuntary manslaughter, according to the Nodaway News Leader. Catterson's blood alcohol level registered .207, which is more than twice the legal limit, according to a probable cause statement obtained by the newspaper.
