Faucett, MO (June 29, 2022) – One woman was transported to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries following a vehicle collision in Buchanan County. At around 10:20 a.m., on June 28, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 29.
Reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol indicate that a 2021 Chevrolet Spark was traveling on the southbound side of Interstate 29. For unknown reasons, the vehicle began to experience a mechanical defect. As a result, the vehicle began to slow down near mile marker 32.8. A 2021 Peterbilt came up behind the Chevrolet and crashed into the rear.
The impact of the crash caused the Chevrolet to go off the west side of the roadway and crashed into a guard rail.
The driver of the Chevrolet, 46-year-old Amy Schiffer, sustained injuries as a result of the accident. She was transported by Buchanan County EMS to Mosaic Life Care in St. Joseph for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Amy Schiffer at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
