Benton Township, MO (June 27, 2022) – A crash reported in Texas County sent two people to area hospitals with injuries. At around 11:40 a.m., on June 26, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of the crash that took place on Highway 142.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe pulled out into the path of a 2007 Dodge 1500 pickup truck at the intersection of Highway 142 and Highway E near Moody.
Both vehicles sustained significant damage as a result of the accident and had to be towed from the scene.
Two people involved in the accident were injured. EMS rendered aid to 40-year-old Pamela Hicks and 79-year-old Jessie Guffey at the scene. Both victims were then transported to Ozark healthcare in West Plains, Missouri for further medical assistance.
