Jefferson, MO (February 1, 2022) – At around 11:54 a.m., on January 31, emergency crews were requested on-site at a motor vehicle accident on US Highway 67.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2012 Toyota Corolla was driving in the right lane of northbound US Highway 67. As the driver attempted to change lanes, it collided with a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan just north of Missouri State Route 110.
The driver of the Dodge, 56-year-old Michael Wilkins, sustained injuries in the accident. Wilkins was transported by Rock Township Ambulance District to Mercy Hospital in Jefferson for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Michael Wilkins at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
