Categorized as Auto Accidents

Thomson Township, MO (December 14, 2021) – Several people were transported to area hospitals with injuries following a crash in Scotland County on Monday morning, December 13. At around 6:20 a.m., emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on US Highway 136.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a Komatsu WA270 front-end loader was traveling slowly on US Highway 136 when it was struck in the rear by a 2005 GMC Sierra. The impact of the crash caused the GMC to travel off the right side of the road. A 2017 Kenworth tractor-trailer then collided with the Komatsu. The Kenworth then became involved in a collision with a 2018 Ford F-150.

A total of four people were injured in this accident. 58-year-old Darin Dale was airlifted to the University of Missouri Hospital for care. Air evac transported 59-year-old Allen Conover to Blessing Hospital for treatment. Both 54-year-old Larry Asher and 70-year-old Michael Hammond were transported via ambulance to Scotland County Hospital.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Darin Dale, Allen Conover, Larry Asher, and Michael Hammond at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
