Categorized as Auto Accidents

Springfield, MO (November 4, 2021) – One woman was left with moderate injuries following a motor vehicle collision in the Springfield area, according to local news sources. At around 5:15 p.m., on November 3, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Missouri State Highway 413.

Reports from local authorities indicate that a collision between a 2012 Subaru Impreza and a 2011 Ford Fusion occurred on Missouri State Highway 413 just 2 miles west of Springfield.

The crash caused moderate delays in the area as crews worked to clear the scene. Preliminary investigations found that the Subaru’s driver, 29-year-old Michael Duncan, fell asleep while operating his vehicle, causing it to change lanes and strike the Ford.

The driver of the Ford, 40-year-old Lydia Winckler, was transported to Cox South in Springfield with injuries.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Lydia Winckler. We hope for her full recovery.
