Franklin, MO (August 9, 2022) – One woman was left injured following a motor vehicle accident that occurred in Franklin County on Monday afternoon. At around 12:10 p.m., on August 8, the Missouri State Highway Patrol received a notification that their assistance was needed on-site at a multi-vehicle collision that occurred on US Highway 50.
MSHP trooper N Downs responded to the scene to provide assistance. Investigations show that a 2022 Jeep Wrangler was stopped at the intersection of US Highway 50 and Missouri State Route 185. As the vehicle waited to make a left turn, a distracted driver in a 2009 Ford Escape struck the rear of the Jeep. The impact of the crash caused the forward to cross into the path of a 2010 Chevrolet Malibu, resulting in the two vehicles colliding.
The three vehicles were all significantly damaged as a result of the crash. The Chevrolet and the Ford had to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the Jeep, 57-year-old Betty Blaue, was injured as a result of the crash. She was transported to Mercy Hospital in Washington, Missouri, where she underwent treatment for her injuries.
The crash is under investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with Betty Blaue as we hope for her full recovery.
