A 58-year-old man from Corder was killed in a crash on Wednesday night.

The crash happened just after 10 p.m. at Highway 20 and Highway 23, near Alma in Lafayette County.

The 19-year-old driver of a 2012 Nissan failed to yield while making a left-hand turn, which caused them and their two passengers to end up in the path of a 1997 Saturn.

The driver of the Saturn then hit the Nissan.

David M. Gamel, who was driving the Saturn, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The person driving the Nissan was seriously injured. The two passengers, who were 13 and 22 years old, sustained moderate injuries.

It is unknown if either of the drivers was wearing a seatbelt.

The 22-year-old passenger was not wearing their seatbelt, but the 13-year-old passenger was.
