Longwood Township, MO (October 31, 2021) – Several people were left with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in Pettis County on Saturday evening. Just after 11:20 p.m., on October 30, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that their assistance was needed on-site at an accident on US Highway 65.
Reports from authorities show that a collision between a 2003 Ford Mustang and a 2004 Buick Lesabre took place on US Highway 54 near the intersection of Trickum Road.
The drivers of both vehicles were treated at the scene. The two victims were identified as 19-year-old Chantz Wheeler and 54-year-old Kennith Howery. Four passengers in the Mustang were injured. The victims were identified as 19-year-old Alana Fletcher, two 17-year-old female juveniles, and a 16-year-old male. All four teens were transported to University Medical Center for care.
At this time, the Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
Our thoughts are with Chantz Wheeler, Kennith Howery, Alana Fletcher, and the three teens injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of people are involved in crashes throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in severe injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, injured parties are left with broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require ongoing medical care. The unfortunate truth is that motor vehicle accidents impact more than just the mental and physical health and wellbeing of victims. Not only are accidents overwhelmingly painful, but they can be financially draining as well.
