Carroll Co, MO (November 10, 2020) – One critically injured victim was airlifted from the scene of a car crash on Highway 65 on Sunday, November 8th.
Troopers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and deputies from the Carroll County Sheriff’s Department both responded to the scene of a major injury accident on US-65 at the intersection of County Route 340 at about 5:15 p.m.
Initial reports state that, for reasons that have yet to be determined, a 2008 Ford Fusion veered into the lanes of oncoming traffic and directly into the path of a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado.
The driver of the Fusion, a 26-year-old male from Carrollton, was airlifted to Truman Hospital with serious injuries.
The driver of the Silverado, a 39-year-old female, also from Carrollton, was transported by Carroll County EMS to Carroll County Hospital. Her injuries were classified as moderate.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
