Joplin, MO - Two Injured in Crash on Five Mile Rd

Jul 6, 2021

Joplin, MO (July 06, 2021) - Two teenagers were injured during a single-vehicle crash on Tuesday, July 6th in Newton County.

The accident took place at about 2:30 p.m. on Five Mile Road, just outside of Joplin.

The driver, 18-year-old Ruby L. Gilion, a resident of Seneca, and her passenger, a 17-year-old girl from Wyandotte, OK., were transported by paramedics to Freeman Hospital West with injuries classified as non-critical.

They were traveling eastbound when the car left the roadway on a sharp curve and crashed into a fence and a tree.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
