Tom Township, MO (August 6, 2022) – One woman was left with moderate injuries following a pedestrian accident in Benton County on Friday morning. At around 7:30 a.m., on August 5, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a crash took place on State Park Road E.
Preliminary investigations into this pedestrian accident show that a 2019 Dodge ram pickup truck was backing a boat down the boat ramp at Truman Reservoir, located off State Park Road E.
At the same time, 75-year-old Darlene Sitton was walking behind the truck. As the dogs backed up, Sitton was struck by the boat.
Sitton suffered moderate injuries due to the crash. She was transported by Warsaw Lincoln Ambulance to Golden Valley Hospital, where she underwent emergency medical treatment.
The crash is under investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with Darlene Sitton at this time.

A motor vehicle accident of any type can result in significant injuries for those involved.
