Henry Co, MO - Three Vehicle injury Crash on MO-7
Henry Co, MO (January 09) - Two people were injured during a three-car accident on State Highway 7 on Friday, January 8th in Henry County.
Incident reports show that the multi-vehicle collision occurred at about 1:10 p.m. in the northbound lanes of State Highway 7 just north of Route O when a 2005 Pontiac Grand Am struck the rear-end of a 2018 Kia Soul as it attempted to pass. This left the Pontiac sitting in the median and caused the Kia to crash into the back of a tractor-trailer that had slowed down to navigate the turn into a private drive.
The driver of the Kia, an 83-year-old woman from Odessa, was transported by Golden Valley Ambulance to Cass Regional with injuries thought to be non-life-threatening.
A 35-year-old female who was riding in the cab of the truck was transported by Golden Valley Ambulance to Golden Valley Memorial Hospital. Her injuries were also considered non-life-threatening.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Of all the reasons why the car accident rate in Missouri has steadily increased for the past several years, the directly proportional surge in the state’s rate of distracted driving seems the most likely. The amount of drivers who are glued to their cellphones even when they are driving has multiplied exponentially in the last ten years. Despite a reduction in their use among teen drivers, roughly 14% of all Missouri accidents are the direct and irrefutable result of cell phone use.
