Freeborn Township, MO (March 9, 2022) – A young child was left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident reported in Dunklin County on Monday morning, March 7. Just after 7:15 a.m., authorities were requested on-site at a traffic-related incident on Missouri State Route 25.
Reports from local authorities show that a 2014 GMC Acadia and a 2014 Jeep Cherokee were stopped in traffic on Missouri State Route 25 just two miles north of Clarkton. At the same time, a 2005 Ford Focus traveling through the area struck the rear of the GMC. The impact of the crash caused the GMC to crash into the rear of the Jeep.
A 9-year-old boy inside the GMC was injured. The child was transported to Southeast Health in Dexter for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the child who was injured in this accident. We hope for his full recovery.
