Warsaw, MO (December 21, 2021) – One woman was left with moderate injuries as a result of a motor vehicle collision in Benton County on Monday afternoon, December 20. At around 1:45 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was requested n-site at a crash on Missouri State Route BB.
Reports from MSHP Trooper R. W. Ronsenthal show that a 2012 Suzuki Equator was driving on Route BB when it crossed over the center of the roadway and struck a 2007 Subaru Forester near Tank Car Drive.
The driver of the Subaru, 78-year-old Patricia Nel, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. She was transported by ambulance to Golden Valley Hospital for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Patricia Nel at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
