Pickering, MO - One Hospitalized After Crash on Imperial Rd
Pickering, MO (November 09, 2020) - A teenager was hospitalized following a two-vehicle accident that took place on Imperial Road on Saturday, November 7th near Pickering.
Reports indicate that a 15-year-old female from Chillicothe was transported to Mosaic Medical Center – Maryville with moderate injuries when the car in which she was riding was hit by a pick-up truck.
The crash occurred at about 8:30 p.m. when a 16-year-old male from Maryville driving a southbound 2009 Kia Optima along Imperial Road tried to make a U-turn at the intersection when it was struck on the driver’s side by a 1997 Chevrolet 1500 pick-up truck being driven by a 17-year-old male, also from Maryville.
The driver of the Kia sustained injuries that were considered non-life-threatening. The drivers of both vehicles were wearing their seat belts during the collision. The girl taken to the hospital was reportedly unbuckled.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
