Republic, MO (June 23, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Greene County left two people injured. At around 1:47 p.m., on June 20, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on Route M.
Reports from local authorities show that a 2001 Hyundai Elantra and a 2016 Chevrolet Equinox collided on Route M, just one mile east of Republic. Both vehicles were totaled as a result of the crash and had to be towed from the scene.
Two people inside the Chevrolet were injured. EMS transported 73-year-old Alex Cano and 75-year-old Dianna Cano to Cox South Hospital for the treatment of injuries.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Alex Cano and Dianna Cano at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

There are countless instances where people suffer from spinal cord injuries, internal organ damage, and severe cuts and lacerations due to drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions. When victims are injured in accidents, they often have to go through extensive medical treatment.
