Franklin, MO (July 12, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Franklin County left one woman seriously injured. At around 12:35 p.m., on July 11, emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of a crash on Missouri State Route 100.
Reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2008 GMC 3500 was traveling on Route V when the driver began to cross over Missouri State Route 100. The driver failed to yield the right-of-way to a 2020 GMC Acadia. As a result, the two vehicles collided. Both vehicles sustained significant damage as a result of the accident and had to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the Acadia, 30-year-old Meghan Tucker, suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident. She was transported to Mercy Hospital in Washington, Missouri for emergency medical treatment.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Meghan Tucker at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
