Jefferson, MO (November 19, 2021) – Three people were transported to an area hospital with injuries following a motor vehicle accident on Wednesday evening in Jefferson County. At around 5:18 p.m., on November 17, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Highway A.

Reports from authorities show that a 2019 Honda Accord, driven by a 16-year-old female, and a 2010 Acura TSX collided on Highway A just west of the intersection with Highway P.

The crash left three people injured. The driver of the Honda, her 13-year-old passenger, and the driver of the Acura, 21-year-old Tyler Shoemaker, were all transported to Mercy Hospital South via ambulance for care.
