Camden, MO (February 13, 2022) – Authorities were called to the site of a motor vehicle accident in the Camden area that left two people injured. At around 1:40 p.m., on February 11, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on US Highway 54.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2020 Chevrolet Impala and a 2011 Toyota Avalon collided on US Highway 54 at the intersection of Sunny Slope Roadway.
Two people involved in the crash were injured. EMS transported 87-year-old Beverly Yagel to Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach for the treatment of serious injuries. Life Flight transported the second victim, 72-year-old David Richeson to University Hospital in Columbia for the treatment of serious injuries.

Car accidents throughout the state of Missouri send thousands of people to area hospitals with injuries. Although some of these collisions are unavoidable, we continue to see numerous people sustain life-changing injuries as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of others. The chances of suffering catastrophic injuries are greatly increased in accidents involving speeding vehicles, motorcycles, pedestrians, and semi-trucks. However, it is important to understand that various factors come into play when it comes to determining the severity of an injury a victim is likely to sustain.
There are thousands of people who sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and even spinal cord injuries from their accidents. These collisions often force innocent victims into area hospitals where they have to undergo extensive medical treatment. Many victims require hospitalization and have to spend weeks or even months off work as they go through therapy and transition back into their normal routine.
