Franklin, MO (December 22, 2021) – Several people were left with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the Franklin area on Tuesday afternoon. Just before 2 p.m., on December 21, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Missouri State Route 47.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2013 Nissan Altima was traveling north on Missouri State Route 47 when the vehicle collided with a 2018 Peterbilt tractor-trailer just south of Highway AD.
Four people inside the Nissan were injured. EMS transported 34-year-old Rachel Logan to Mercy Hospital St Louis for care. Three juvenile females, ages 8, 9, and 12, were all transported to Children’s Hospital St Louis. The youngest child was flown by Arch Evac.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Rachel Logan and the three children who were injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
