Categorized as Auto Accidents

Joplin, MO (October 26, 2021) – Three people were left with moderate injuries following a crash in Newton County on Monday morning, October 25.

At around 6:35 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed at the scene of a crash on Gateway Drive.

Reports from local authorities indicate that a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe pulled into the path of a 2005 Saturn Ion while traveling on Gateway Drive. As a result, the vehicles collided approximately 3-miles south of Joplin. The impact of the crash caused the Saturn to cross the center lines and collide with a 2006 Honda Civic.

The 17-year-old male driver of the Saturn was not injured in the accident. The driver of the Hyundai, 30-year-old Briauna Dobbs, sustained injuries and was transported to Mercy Hospital in Joplin for care.

The driver of the Honda, 52-year-old Lonnie Judd, and his passenger, 63-year-old Denise Judd, were both injured. Both victims were transported to Mercy Hospital in Joplin for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Lonnie Judd, Denise Judd, and Briauna Dobbs at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
