Lebanon, MO (July 27, 2022) – A vehicle collision reported in Laclede County left two people injured. At around 4:50 p.m., on July 26, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a crash took place on Ginger Road that required assistance.
Preliminary investigations show that a 2015 Dodge Challenger and a 2012 GMC Acadia were traveling too close to the sender of the roadway on Ginger Road. As a result, the two vehicles collided head-on just one-half mile north of Lebanon, Missouri.
The crash totaled both vehicles, requiring them to be removed from the scene by two tow trucks.
Two people involved in the crash suffered significant injuries. Mercy EMS transported 29-year-old Zachary Bethel and 64-year-old Susan Dimmick to Cox South Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, where they underwent emergency medical treatment for their injuries.
The circumstances surrounding the accident are under investigation at this time by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Our thoughts are with Susan Dimmick and Zachary Bethel at this time.
