El Dorado Springs, MO (June 9, 2022) – A multiple vehicle collision that took place in Cedar County left one woman injured. At around 9:45 a.m., on June 3, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on US Highway 54.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 1994 Ford F150 pickup truck and a 2008 Toyota Camry collided on US Highway 54 just 4 miles east of El Dorado Springs. The impact of the crash caused the Toyota to travel into the oncoming lane and collide with a 2006 Freightliner tractor-trailer. All three vehicles sustained extensive damage and had to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the Toyota, 35-year-old Jessica Baker, sustained moderate injuries in the crash. Baker was transported by ambulance to Cedar County Memorial Hospital in El Dorado Springs for emergency medical care.
At this time, the crash remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Jessica Baker at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
