Franklin, MO (June 2, 2022) – Three people were left injured as a result of a two-vehicle collision that took place in Franklin on Monday afternoon. Just before 3 p.m., on May 30, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the site of a motor vehicle collision that took place on Missouri State Route 47.

Reports provided by authorities indicate that a 2011 Buick Lucerne made a left turn from Forest Hills Drive onto Missouri State Route 47. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2012 Ford Fusion. The impact of the crash caused the Buick to go off the right side of the roadway near Country Club Road. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage and had to be towed from the scene.

A total of three people involved in the accident were injured. EMS rendered aid to 19-year-old Lacey Stone, 83-year-old Frankie Hogan, and 85-year-old Richard Smith at the scene. The three victims were then transported by Washington ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Washington for further care.
