Katy Township, MO (October 28, 2021) – A total of four people were injured in a motor vehicle accident in Katy Township on Wednesday morning, October 27.
Just before 11:30 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on US Highway 40.
Reports from MSHP Trooper M. H. Mistler show that a 2009 Buick Lucerne was traveling south on Rollingwood Boulevard when it collided with a 2013 Ford F-150 at the intersection of US Highway 40.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured and two passengers. The driver of the Ford, 56-year-old Lonnie Duncan, the driver of the Buick, 29-year-old Sonnikqua McKamey, and two passengers in the Buick, a 1-year-old male, and 37-year-old Brandon Lewis, were all transported to University Hospital Columbia for care. The 1-year-old male was later airlifted to St. Louis Children’s hospital for further care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Lonnie Duncan, Sonnikqua McKamey, Brandon Lewis, and the child injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
