Boone, MO (July 21, 2022) – A vehicle collision reported in Boone sent one woman to a local hospital with serious injuries. Just after 3 p.m., on July 20, Trooper GT Pemberton of the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to a crash on US Highway 63.
Reports from authorities indicate that a 2013 Chevrolet sonic was stationary on the left lane of the northbound side of US Highway 63 near the intersection of Missouri State Route 124 E. Reports show that the Chevrolet was involved in an earlier collision and became disabled on the side of the roadway.
A pedestrian, 64-year-old Brenda Smith, was trying to assist the driver of the vehicle. For unknown reasons, a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee traveling through the area struck the Chevrolet, causing the vehicle to propel forward into the pedestrian. The Jeep was then struck by a 2008 Kenworth W900. The Jeep was pushed into the median.
Smith suffered severe injuries due to this motor vehicle crash and was rushed by Boone ambulance district to University Hospital for emergency medical treatment.
The crash is under investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with Brenda Smith as we hope for her full recovery.
