Piedmont, MO (February 9, 2022) – One teen was transported to an area hospital for the treatment of injuries following a two-vehicle collision in Wayne County. At around 3:50 p.m., on February 7, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Highway 34.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper L E Hughes show that a 2009 Chevrolet Tahoe failed to yield the right of way to a 2006 Ford Mustang on Highway 34 just three miles east of Piedmont. As a result, the two vehicles collided.
The driver of the Ford, 19-year-old Lindsey Allen, sustained injuries in the crash. Allen was transported by Wayne County ambulance to Parkland Farmington for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Lindsey Allen at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
