Categorized as Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

Independence, MO (June 2, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Jackson County on Wednesday morning left one woman injured. Just before 6:20 a.m., on June 1, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 70.

Reports provided by authorities show that a 2008 Honda Civic improperly made a lane change while traveling on the westbound side of Interstate 70. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2017 Toyota Camry and a 2020 Ram ProMaster near mile marker 26. The Honda and the RAM both suffered significant damage and had to be towed from the scene. MSHP and firefighters closed off a portion of the roadway as they work to clear the area and restore the flow of traffic.

One person involved in the accident was injured. The victim, 22-year-old Jade Brown, was transported by SNI Valley EMS to St. Mary’s Hospital for further evaluation.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Jade Brown at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
