Categorized as Auto Accidents

Rocky Comfort, MO (October 25, 2021) – Several people were left injured following a motor vehicle accident in McDonald County, according to reports. Just before 6 p.m., on October 23, emergency crews were notified that a crash took place on Missouri State Highway 76.

Reports from authorities show that a 2018 Dodge Ram, driven by a 16-year-old male, was involved in a collision with a 1999 Ford F-150, driven by 63-year-old Seth Duvall. Missouri State Highway Patrol determined that the Ram failed to yield the right of way to the Ford. As a result, a collision took place.

Duvall and two passengers in the Dodge, a 15-year-old female, and 18-year-old Courtney Keaton, were all injured.

Duvall and Keaton were both transported to Mercy Joplin for care. The young teen was transported to Freeman Neosho for treatment. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Seth Duvall, Courtney Keaton, and the teen injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
