Orrick, MO (October 5, 2021) – Authorities have confirmed that two people were left with serious injuries following a motor vehicle accident in Ray County on Sunday afternoon, October 3.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that at 2:15 p.m., a collision between a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2006 Jeep Liberty occurred on Missouri State Highway 210 in the area of Brashears Road.
The incident caused moderate delays in the area after crews closed off the intersection.
The driver of the Liberty, identified as 54-year-old Susan Martin, and her 11-year-old female passenger, were both injured in the accident. The child was transported via air ambulance to Children’s Mercy hospital for care. Martin was transported to Center Point via air ambulance.
