Phillipsburg, MO (July 11, 2022) – Two people were hospitalized with injuries following a crash that occurred in Laclede County. At around 12:20 a.m., on July 9, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a crash that occurred on Missouri State Highway W.
Reports from authorities show that a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado was traveling on Missouri State Highway W when it crossed over the centerline and struck a 2011 Chevy Equinox just west of Monroe Drive. Both vehicles sustained significant damage as a result of the crash and had to be towed from the scene.
Two people involved in the accident were injured. EMS rendered aid to 41-year-old Jonathan Dugger and 49-year-old Tina Navarro at the scene. Both victims were then transported by Mercy ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Lebanon, Missouri for emergency medical treatment.
At this time, investigations surrounding the accident are underway.
Our thoughts are with Jonathan Dugger and Tina Navarro at this time. We hope for their whole recovery.
