Boone, MO (June 24, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Boone sent several people to area hospitals with injuries. At around 4:40 p.m., on June 20, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on Route WW.
Reports from MSHP show that a 2010 Honda Accord failed to yield the right of way while crossing Route WW near Olivette Road. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2010 Chevrolet Traverse. One of the vehicles then collided with a 2008 Ford Ranger.
A total of four people were injured as a result of the accident. EMS rendered aid to 21-year-old Hanna Lee, 28-year-old Shanoria Benson, 47-year-old Kalisha Ayuso, and 77-year-old Lowell Schoengarth at the scene. Lee and Schoengarth were then transported to Boone Hospital for medical care.
Benson was then transported to Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Columbia. Ayuso was transported to University Hospital for medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Shanoria Benson, Kalisha Ayuso, Lowell Schoengarth, and Hanna Lee. We hope for their full recovery.
