Categorized as Auto Accidents

Franklin, MO (March 13, 2022) – Emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the Franklin area that left two people injured. At around 2:50 p.m., on March 9, a crash was reported on US Highway 50.

Reports from authorities show that a 2020 Nissan Rouge and a 1997 Buick Century were both stopped on the westbound side of US Highway 50 for a school bus near Route CC.

A 2001 Chevrolet Suburban passing through the area was unable to stop. As a result, the vehicle crashed into the rear of the Buick. The Buick then struck the Nissan.

Two people in the Nissan were injured. Both 73-year-old Linda Rowe and 85-year-old Warner Rowe were transported to Mercy Washington Hospital for care.

The crash remains under investigation at this time.

Our thoughts are with Linda Rowe and Warner Rowe at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
