Lebanon, MO (June 8, 2022) – Authorities were dispatched to the scene of a multivehicle accident in Laclede County that left one man seriously injured. At around 10:24 a.m., on June 6, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a collision between vehicles blocked Interstate 44.
Reports provided by MS HP indicate that a 2016 Volvo Conventional tractor was traveling too fast for road conditions. As a result, the vehicle crashed into the rear of a 2014 Honda Ridgeline near mile marker 125.6. The impact of the crash caused the Honda to crash into a 2014 Dodge Ram pickup truck. The Dodge then traveled off the left side of the roadway, through the median, and collided with a 2022 Ford F150 pickup truck.
The driver of the Honda, 22-year-old Hunter Reed, suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident. He was transported by Mercy ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, for emergency medical treatment.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Hunter Reed at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
