O’Fallon, MO (October 20, 2021) – Two people were left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in the O’Fallon area on Monday, October 18.
At around 5:20 p.m., a 2017 Toyota Tacoma, driven by 53-year-old Shawn Jackson, was traveling north on Highway DD. As the vehicle approached the intersection of Caledonia Road, a 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, driven by 36-year-old Kerri Derbak, was stopped on the southbound side. An unknown vehicle was stopped on the westbound side of the intersection on Caledonia Drive.
For unknown reasons, the third vehicle failed to yield the right of way to the Toyota Tacoma at the intersection. As a result, the two vehicles collided. Debris from the crash struck the Hyundai, causing damage to the vehicle.
Jackson and his 5-year-old female passenger were both injured in the accident. The two victims were transported to Mercy Hospital St. Louis for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Shawn Jackson and the child injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
