Carroll, MO (October 23, 2020) – Officers from the Carroll Police Department reported to the scene of a two-vehicle collision in the westbound lanes of Highway 30 on Thursday, October 22nd.
According to preliminary statements, local law enforcement was dispatched to the crash site in the 900 block of U.S. Highway 30 at about 2:10 p.m. when a 2014 Dodge Ram pick-up truck collided with an oncoming 2005 Lexus ES330.
The driver of the Lexus, a 32-year-old male, stated that as he was exiting the parking lot of the Hy-Vee, a tractor-trailer that was waiting for traffic to turn off of the highway and into the parking lot obstructed visibility and he was hit when he pulled out into the roadway.
Police and emergency responders on the scene medically evaluated both people involved and arranged for any emergency treatment or transportation as was needed by the victims.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
