Categorized as Auto Accidents

Pike, MO (January 6, 2022) – Two people were hospitalized with injuries following a two-vehicle collision in Pike County on Tuesday evening, January 4. At around 5:15 p.m., authorities were requested on-site at a crash on US Highway 61.

Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper G. C. Leach show that the driver of a 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 failed to yield the right of way while traveling through the intersection of US Highway 61 and Highway WW. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica.

Two people involved in the crash were injured. EMS transported 39-year-old Nicole Fairchild to Pike County Hospital for the treatment of injuries. A second ambulance transported 80-year-old Janie Jackson to St Joseph West for the treatment of moderate injuries.

At this time, investigations surrounding the accident are underway.

Our thoughts are with Nicole Fairchild and Janie Jackson at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
