Jackson, MO (June 29, 2022) – Authorities were dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident in Jackson that left two people injured. At around 3:45 p.m., on June 28, emergency crews were notified that a collision took place on Interstate 70 that required assistance.
Reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol indicate that a 2013 Freightliner attempted to change lanes while traveling on the westbound side of Interstate 70 just east of mile marker 19.6. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2008 Mazda. The impact of the crash caused the Mazda to strike a barrier wall and then crash into a 2007 Cadillac. All three vehicles sustained significant damage and had to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the Mazda, 63-year-old Lorraine Owens, and her passenger, 65-year-old Wilma Mitchem, sustained injuries as a result of the crash. Both victims were transported to Centerpoint hospital for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Wilma Mitchem and Lorraine Owens at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
