Categorized as Auto Accidents

Wardell, MO (December 26, 2021) – Several people were transported to area hospitals with injuries following an accident in Pemiscot County. At around 2 a.m., on December 26, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 55.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria collided with a 1994 Ford Ranger on the southbound side of Interstate 55 in the area near mile marker 26.

The impact of the crash caused the Ford to collide with a 2003 Chevrolet Suburban. All three vehicles were left with moderate damage.

A total of six people involved in the crash were injured. EMS transported 34-year-old Keith Spriggs, an 8-year-old female, and a 7-year-old female to Pemiscot Memorial Hospital for care.

48-year-old Jennifer Evans was transported by ambulance to Missouri Delta Hospital in Sikeston. Two other victims, 69-year-old Maria Carmona and 74-year-old Isaac Razo were transported to St Francis Hospital.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Keith Spriggs, Jennifer Evans, Maria Carmona, Isaac Razo, and the two children who were injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
