Clinton, MO (June 18, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Henry County ended in injuries. At around 7:50 a.m., on June 14, emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of a crash that occurred on Missouri State Route 7.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2012 Ford and a 2021 Kia collided on Missouri State Route 7 in the area of Route U. The incident left both vehicles with extensive damage, requiring them to be towed from the scene.
A total of four people involved in the crash were injured. Two minors, an infant boy and a 4-year-old girl, and 52-year-old Danna Leimkuehler, were all transported to Cass Regional Medical Center for the treatment of injuries.
The fourth victim, 58-year-old Doreen Gibbons, was transported by Air EMS to Centerpoint Medical Center in Independence, Missouri, for the treatment of serious injuries.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Doreen Gibbons, Danna Leimkuehler, and the two children who were injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle accidents are often life-changing. Unfortunately, this is not usually for the best. Many people are left with painful injuries that require emergency medical care. Victims are often required to go through months of therapy and rehabilitation in the aftermath of their accidents. Unfortunately, no amount of treatment can guarantee that a victim will fully recover. Instead, countless people are left permanently disabled as a result of their accidents every single year.
The majority of accidents that take place in our state are a result of drivers who enter roadways while engaging in reckless and negligent actions. Some of the most common causes of crashes in our state include:
- drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- drivers who engage in reckless actions while operating their vehicles
- drivers who run red lights or pass stop signs at intersections
- drivers who fail to yield to others
When motorists engage in these and other reckless actions, they often cause severe accidents that cause endless pain and suffering for victims.
