Sedalia, MO (February 21, 2022) – Several people were transported to area hospitals with injuries following an auto accident in Pettis County. At around 4:15 p.m., on February 16, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that an auto accident on US Highway 65 required assistance.

Reports from MSHP show that a school bus was stopped on the right shoulder of northbound US Highway 65 while preparing to let children off at their stop. A 2014 Ford Escape was stopped in the left lane of US Highway 65 when it was struck in the rear by a 2001 Acura CL.

The driver of the Acura, 80-year-old Janice Ek, sustained injuries in the accident. A total of five people inside the Ford were also injured. EMS transported Ek, 57-year-old Cathleen Krueger, 36-year-old Keith Lybarger, 29-year-old Chelsey Lybarger, a 3-year-old boy, and an infant boy to Bothwell Regional Medical Center for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
