Bolivar, MO - Two-Car Injury Accident on Rt D
Bolivar, MO (January 10, 2021) - On Sunday, January 10th, an injury-causing collision took place between two vehicles on Route D in Polk County.
At about 4:40 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the crash site in the northbound lane of Route D, two miles north of Bolivar.
Reports show that as a 1995 GMC Sedona attempted to make a lefthand turn into a private driveway, a 2008 Ford F150 pick-up truck crashed into its driver’s side.
The driver of the GMC, a 47-year-old female from Bolivar, suffered moderate injuries during the impact. She was transported via ambulance to Citizen’s Memorial Hospital for immediate medical treatment.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
