Blue Springs, MO (October 19, 2020) – On Thursday, October 15th, an injury-causing car accident took place in the eastbound lanes of Adams Dairy Parkway in the city of Blue Springs.
According to a report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, at about 8:15 a.m., a 2004 Ford Expedition driven by a 24-year-old female was extensively damaged when, for reasons that have yet to be determined, the vehicle veered off the lefthand side of the parkway, striking a ditch and a cable barrier, eventually coming to a stop in the median.
The sole passenger in the Ford, a 25-year-old male, was injured during the accident. Emergency medical personnel transported the injured victim to St. Mary’s Hospital with injuries that were classified as non-life-threatening.
There is no word on the condition of the driver.
This accident is under investigation by local law enforcement.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
