Categorized as Auto Accidents

Holland, MO (October 26, 2021) – Authorities were called to the site of a crash in Pemiscot County that left one woman with serious injuries. At around 12:30 p.m., on October 25, calls for assistance came in surrounding an incident on US Highway 61.

Reports from authorities show that a 2009 Pontiac G6 collided with a 1997 Freightliner on US Highway 61 just one-half of a mile north of Holland. The crash left the Pontiac with extensive damage. The vehicle was towed from the scene by One Hooker Towing. The Freightliner also required towing from the scene and was removed by Ace Wrecker.

The driver of the Pontiac, 36-year-old Leann King, sustained serious injuries. She was airlifted by Surviving Flight to Regional One Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee for care.

At this time, the Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating to determine the cause of the crash.

Our thoughts are with Leann King at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
