Jefferson, MO (August 10, 2022) – One woman was hospitalized as a result of a truck accident that occurred in Jefferson County. At around 10:10 a.m., on August 8, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to a crash that occurred on Missouri State Route 141.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 2016 Subaru Forrester and a 2018 Ford Mustang were both making a left turn onto northbound Missouri State Route 141 from Missouri State Route 21. For unknown reasons, the driver of a 2005 Kenworth W 19 failed to stop at a steady red traffic signal at the intersection. As a result, the Kenworth and the Subaru collided. The Subaru was then pushed into the Ford. All three vehicles suffered significant damage due to the crash.
The driver of the Subaru, 73-year-old Nancy Hake, was injured due to the crash. Hake was transported by rock Township ambulance to Mercy Hospital South for emergency treatment.
The crash is under investigation at this time by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
