Farmington, MO (October 10, 2021) – One person was left injured following a motor vehicle accident in St. Francois County on Friday afternoon, October 8. The victim has since been identified as 34-year-old Merrissa Shutt of Kansas City, Missouri.
Just before 12:30 p.m., a 2021 Ram Promaster 1500 was traveling on Perrine Road when the vehicle collided with a 2012 Ford Escape just south of the intersection of Anthony Lane. The impact of the crash pushed the Escape off the roadway.
Shutt, who was driving the Ford Escape, sustained injuries in the accident. At this time, the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Merrissa Shutt at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
