Categorized as Auto Accidents

Union Township, MO (February 22, 2022) – A crash reported just outside of Dixon on Monday morning left three teens injured. Just after 3:15 a.m., on February 21, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a crash on Highway 28.

Reports from authorities show that a 2020 Hyundai Accent was involved in an accident on the highway just one mile south of Dixon. The vehicle went off the right side of the road and crashed into a sign before overturning.

A 15-year-old and 18-year-old Alexander Sims were both transported by ambulance to Phelps Health in Roll for care.

A third victim, identified as a 16-year-old male, was transported to General Leonard Wood Hospital.

At this time, the circumstances surrounding the accident are under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Alexander Sims and the two teens injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
