Randolph, MO (November 13, 2021) – An auto accident reported on Thursday morning in Randolph County left two people injured. At around 11 a.m., on November 11, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Route JJ.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that 92-year-old Mary Galegor was driving a 2003 Honda SUV on Route JJ when she became involved in a rear-end collision with a 2005 Nissan truck, driven by 47-year-old Cory Weathers, just 2.5 miles east of Huntsville.
Weathers and Galegor were both injured in the accident. Galegor was transported to Moberly Regional Medical Center for care while Weather was transported to a nearby hospital.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Cory Weathers and Mary Galegor at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
