Liberty Township, MO (November 4, 2021) – An automobile accident reported in Liberty Township left a man and woman injured on Wednesday evening, November 3.
Just after 4:30 p.m., emergency crews were called to the site of a crash on Route M. The Missouri State Highway Patrol and firefighters arrived at the scene of the accident to find a 1997 Pontiac Sunfire and a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe blocking Route M just 1056-feet from the intersection of Bode Ferry Road. The Pontiac was facing east while resting in the westbound lane. The Hyundai went off the left side of the road.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured. Both 28-year-old Dewight Hoffman and 39-year-old Amy Sandbothe were transported to University Hospital for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Amy Sandbothe and Dewight Hoffman. We hope for their full recovery.
