Washington, MO - Crash on MO-47 near Route H Leaves Woman Injured
Washington, MO (October 28, 2021) – A multi-vehicle accident reported in Washington County on Tuesday evening, October 26, left one woman with moderate injuries.
Just before 5:30 p.m., authorities were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Missouri State Highway 47.
Reports from authorities show that a 2004 Ford Excursion was stopped on Missouri Route 47 just east of Route H as the driver waited to make a right turn. At the same time, a 2009 Ford Expedition was stopped behind the Excursion.
For unknown reasons, a 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix struck the rear of the Expedition, causing the vehicle to crash into the rear of the Excursion.
One person involved in the accident, 50-year-old Jennifer McClain, sustained injuries in the accident. She was transported via ambulance to Mercy Hospital South for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Jennifer McClain at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
