Kingsville, MO - Car Rear-Ended by Tractor-Trailer on US-50
Kingsville, MO (December 23, 2020) - Two people sustained injuries when their 2009 Nissan Rogue was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer on US-50 on Tuesday, December 22nd.
Reports show that, at about 1:05 p.m., the Rogue slowed to a stop as it crested a hill, causing an unknown vehicle to swerve out of the way to avoid being sandwiched in between the Rogue and a tractor-trailer. This resulted in the tractor-trailer colliding with the back end of the Rogue, totaling the vehicle and seriously injuring its two occupants.
The driver, a 64-year-old female, and her passenger, a 37-year-old male, were both transported by Johnson County Ambulance District to Centerpoint Hospital for emergency medical treatment.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
