Categorized as Auto Accidents

Wildwood, MO (October 18, 2021) – A man and woman were both hospitalized following a motor vehicle accident in Franklin County on Saturday evening, according to reports.

At around 10:43 p.m., on October 16, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on Missouri State Highway 100.

Reports from authorities show that a 2008 Jeep Laredo, driven by 52-year-old Michael Ridgley, was involved in a collision with a 2017 Chevrolet Traverse, driven by 65-year-old Sharla Howard.

The crash caused moderate delays on the westbound side of Highway 100 just west of Old Manchester Road.

Both Ridgley and Howard were injured in the accident. The two victims were transported to Mercy Hospital St. Louis by Meramec Ambulance.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Michael Ridgley and Sharla Howard at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
