Camden, MO (August 18, 2022) – A vehicle crash reported in Camden County left several people injured. At around 2:50 p.m., on August 16, emergency crews were dispatched to the site of a crash on Route TT.
Reports from local authorities show that a 2002 Ford F-150 pickup truck was traveling too fast for road conditions in the area of Route TT and Shawnee View Drive. As a result, the driver lost control of the vehicle.
The Ford then collided with a 2020 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck. Both vehicles then went off the right side of the roadway.
Three people involved in the accident were injured. EMS transported 23-year-old Kelly McComb, 65-year-old Gary Cleek, and 68-year-old Linda Baxter to Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach for further care.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
Our thoughts are with Kelly McComb, Gary Cleek, and Linda Baxter at this time.
