Lebanon, MO (October 29, 2021) – An auto accident reported in Laclede County left one person injured. Just after 2 p.m., on October 28, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a crash on Highway 5 required assistance.

Reports from MSHP Msgt. M.L. Mobley show that a 2005 Buick Century was traveling on Highway 5 just five miles south of Lebanon when it collided with a 2018 Chevrolet Express van.

The driver of the Van, 25-year-old Joshua Powell sustained minor injuries in the crash. He refused treatment at the scene.

The driver of the Buick, 30-year-old Tristian Garland, sustained moderate injuries. She was transported via ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Lebanon for care.

Our thoughts are with Tristian Garland and Joshua Powell at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
