Monroe Township, MO (October 24, 2021) – A crash in Lincoln County left one man injured, according to reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
At around 9:50 p.m., on October 22, a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe was slowing down on the roadway in front of a 2007 Ford 500 while traveling on Missouri State Highway 79 near Brevator Road.
For unknown reasons, the two vehicles collided. A 2019 Ford Explorer, driven by 48-year-old Renita Watkins, then struck both vehicles.
The 2007 Ford was deemed total. The Explorer and the Chevrolet both suffered extensive damage. All three vehicles were towed from the scene.
The driver of the 2007 Ford, 86-year-old Hubert Stewart, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. He was transported to SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital Lake St. Louis via EMS for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Hubert Stewart at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
