Reeds Spring, MO (November 15, 2021) – A traffic-related incident reported in Stone County left three people injured. At around 9:15 a.m., on November 12, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that an accident on US Highway 160 required assistance.
Reports from MSHP Msgt. S. R. Rowe show that a 2006 Dodge 2500 slid in the pathway of a 2017 Ford F-450 on US Highway 160 just three miles east of Reeds Spring.
The incident resulted in injuries. The driver of the Dodge, 54-year-old Kelly Lungrin, the driver of the Ford, 51-year-old Richard Dickerson, and his passenger, 27-year-old Dakota Marshall, were all transported via ambulance to Cox South Hospital of Springfield for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Kelly Lungrin, Richard Dickerson, and Dakota Marshall at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
