Cullen Township, MO (June 10, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Pulaski County left four people injured. Just before 12:40 p.m., on June 7, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident that took place on Interstate 44.

Reports provided by authorities show that a 2014 Ford Escape in a 2022 Mazda CX5 were both traveling westbound on Interstate 44. For unknown reasons, the Ford crashed into the rear of the Mazda near mile marker 167.5. Both vehicles were totaled as a result of the accident.

A total of four people involved in the accident were injured. EMS rendered aid to 68-year-old Cynthia Asher, 46-year-old David Bridges, 34-year-old Hillary Sullivan, and a 12-year-old female at the scene. All four victims were then transported by ambulance to Phelps Health in Rolla for further treatment of injuries.

At this time, the crash remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Cynthia Asher, David Bridges, Hilary Sullivan, and the young child who was injured as a result of this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
