Caldwell Co, MO – Leanne Mast Killed in Collision on US-36

Categorized as Auto Accidents

Caldwell Co, MO (October 21, 2020) – Officers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol were dispatched to the scene of a fatal two-car collision along US-36 on Sunday, October 18th.

The accident occurred when a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado traveling southbound along Route D attempted to cross over US-36 but failed to yield the right-of-way to an eastbound 2014 Toyota Venza, causing the two vehicles to collide. Both cars left the roadway and flipped over. The Silverado came to rest on its passenger side and the Venza rolled onto the driver’s side.

The driver of the Silverado, a 25-year-old male, sustained minor injuries during the collision and was treated and released at the crash site.

The driver of the Venza, 67-year-old John Mast was airlifted to Truman Medical Center in critical condition. His passenger, 65-year-old Leanne Mast, was transported via ambulance to Liberty Hospital where she was pronounced dead a short while later.

This accident is under investigation by the Caldwell County Sheriff’s Department.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim, Mrs. Leanne Mast, at this time. Our thoughts are with the injured victim and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
