Categorized as Auto Accidents

Jefferson Co, MO (October 22, 2020) – A 22-year-old woman from Imperial was severely injured on Wednesday, October 21st during a two-vehicle collision that took place along Interstate 55 just north of Highway 141 I-55 north of Hwy. 141

Officials from the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that, at about 8:50 p.m., Tabitha Duncan was driving a 2009 Honda Civic northbound along Interstate 55 when the front driver’s side of her vehicle made contact with the back right portion of a 2016 Ford Fiesta heading in the same direction.

The impact caused the Civic to veer off the righthand side of the highway, continue down a steep embankment, and rollover, causing her to be thrown from the vehicle.

The driver of the Fiesta, 40-year-old Robert J. Tierney, a resident of St. Louis, was unharmed during the incident.

Duncan was transported via Rock Township Ambulance to Mercy Hospital South. From there she was then transported to Mercy Hospital. Her injuries are classified as serious.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
