3 seriously injured, 1 dead after Saturday wreck

A Cassville woman is dead following a one-vehicle crash that took place late Saturday night.

Tamara D. Corn, 31, was killed when the 2013 Polaris Razor in which she was riding lost control on a curve, ran off the left side of the road and struck a tree on Farm Road 2155, five miles east of Cassville at about 11:50 p.m. Corn was ejected from the vehicle, according to a report from the Missouri Highway Patrol. She was pronounced dead at the scene by Coroner Jim Fohn at about 1 a.m. Sunday.

The driver of the vehicle, 33-year-old William N. Bomar of Springdale, Ark., faces charges of involuntary manslaughter, driving while intoxicated and assault, according to a Highway Patrol report. The report states Bomar was transported to Cox South Hospital in Springfield with serious injuries.

Two other occupants of the vehicle were seriously injured -- Misty D. Bomar, 31, of Springdale, Ark., and James V. Coffman, 27, of Butterfield. Both were transported to Cox South.

According to the Highway Patrol, this is Troop D's 29th fatality of the year. Troop D covers 18 counties in southwest Missouri, including Barry.

  • This event is a true tragedy. Tamara was taken way to soon. The little time I got to spend with her I will never forget.
