LAKE OF THE OZARKS – A Stoutland man is dead in a one-vehicle accident last week in Camden County.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) last Tuesday (September 25) around 9:20 p.m., a 1990 Toyota pickup, driven by Cecil Gideon, 68, of Stoutland, MO, was traveling north on Route T approximately one-half mile north of Davis Road when the vehicle crossed the center line and ran off the left side of the road and struck a tree.

Gideon was pronounced dead at the scene by Camden County Medical Examiner Dee Ballard.

The MSHP said Gideon was not wearing a safety device.

This was Troop F’s 10th fatality for September and the 57th for this year.
