Blackwater, MO (October 26, 2020) – Three vehicles, all heading westbound along Interstate 70, ultimately collided with one another in a double-accident that led to the injuries of two out of the three drivers on Monday, October 26th.
According to initial statements from responding officers, the accident took place at about 8:15 a.m. on Interstate 70 near Blackwater Bridge when a 2017 GMC which, having just been involved in another accident, was pulled over on the lefthand side of the roadway where it was struck by a 2015 Chevrolet.
Officers reported that moments prior to striking the GMC, the Chevrolet had collided with the other vehicle from the previous accident, a 2010 Toyota which was stopped on the opposite side of the street.
The drivers of the GMC and the Chevrolet, both women in their 20s, were transported by emergency medical services to Fitzgibbon Hospital for treatment of injuries believed to be non-life-threatening.
The driver of the Toyota was unharmed during the impact.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
