St Francois, MO (December 21, 2021) – An auto accident reported in the St Francois area left one young woman injured. On December 20, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a crash on US Highway 67 required assistance.
Reports from MSHP Trooper J. J. Wilt show that at around 12:50 p.m., a 2020 Ford Fusion, a 2012 Kia Optima, and a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica were traveling south on US Highway 67.
For unknown reasons, the driver of the Chrysler swerved their vehicle, which resulted in a collision with the Ford. The Ford then collided with the Kia.
The driver of the Kia, 19-year-old Abigail Gowen, sustained injuries in the accident. Gowen was transported to Parkland Health Center South Farmington by St Francois County ambulance.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Abigail Gowen at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
