Categorized as Auto Accidents

Buchanan, MO (October 31, 2021) – An automobile accident reported in Buchanan County left several people injured on Friday evening, October 29. The Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified at around 6:30 p.m., that a crash took place on Interstate 29 that required assistance.

Reports from authorities show that a semi-truck rear-ended on a 2013 Toyota Camry, driven by 44-year-old Linda Brown, just south of the downtown St. Joseph Exit. The impact of the crash pushed the Camry into a 2009 Ford Escape, driven by 54-year-old Sherry Johnson. The Ford was then pushed off the side of the highway.

The Camry continued forward for a short distance before striking a 2007 Mitsubishi SUV, driven by 53-year-old Christina Nikes.

Brown and three passengers in the Camry were injured. The victims, identified as 22-year-old Courtney Brown, 23-year-old Zonlin Yang, and a 17-year-old male were all transported to Mosaic Life Care for treatment. Nikes and a passenger in the SUV, 55-year-old Lorna Protzman, were both transported to Mosaic Life Care for treatment.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Linda Brown, Courtney Brown, Zonlin Yang, Lorna Protzman, Christina Nikes, and the teen injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Each year, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of thousands of people across our state. Not only do people involved in collisions have their lives disrupted, but they are often left with significant financial, mental, and physical consequences as well. Victims involved in accidents are often forced out of work for several weeks at a time, going without the monetary support they need to pay their bills and take care of their families. To make the struggle even worse, towering medical bills start rolling in immediately.

When victims are injured in accidents, those harmed are able to pursue legal actions to obtain compensation to cover the financial burdens they face moving forward.
