Pettis Co, MO (June 29, 2021) – On Thursday, June 29th, a chain-reaction accident involving three vehicles took place in the westbound lanes of Route Y at the intersection for Quisenberry Road in Sedalia.
The crash occurred at about 9:40 a.m. when a 2017 Subaru Outback slowed to make a lefthand turn onto Quisenberry Road. As the 2019 Honda Civic right behind it also slowed, it was hit from behind by a 2002 Toyota Camry. The impact caused the Civic to crash into the rear-end of the Outback.
The driver of the Civic, a 78-year-old female from Sedalia, was moderately injured during the crash. She was transported by Pettis County Ambulance Division to Regional Health for treatment.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Pile-Up Crashes in Pettis County
“Chain-reaction” or “pile-up” accidents, are a well-known style of motor vehicle collisions that are often the result of distracted driving or tailgating, wherein one vehicle follows too closely to the one in front of it, or a driver fails to stop in time. Missouri driving laws state that drivers are required to maintain a reasonable and safe space cushion between their vehicle and the vehicles around them at all times. Failure to adhere to this law often results in tragic and preventable accidents.
