Rock Port, MO - Two Critically injured in Head-On Crash on US-136

May 28, 2021

Rock Port, MO (May 28, 2021) - On Friday, May 28th, a head-on collision between two vehicles in Atchison County caused very serious injuries to two of the people involved.

According to police, the crash happened at about 6:40 a.m. on US-136 just outside of Rockport when an eastbound 1938 Chevrolet Deluxe PC and a westbound 2015 Ram pick-up truck collided head-on with one another.

The driver of the Deluxe, a 50-year-old male, and his passenger, a 44-year-old female, both residents of Auburn, NE., sustained critical injuries during the crash. Both were transported by Atchinson-Holt Ambulance to Community Hospital.

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

Head-On Accidents in Rock Port


A head-on accident between two cars is one of the most dangerous and deadly forms of car accidents. At best, they force their survivors to deal with serious injuries, and, at their worst, they cut lives tragically short. The odds of a head-on crash increase exponentially when a motorist fails to maintain their lane and/or control of their vehicle. The main causes behind these violent accidents are drivers who are distracted, speeding, or under the influence.
