Jefferson, MO (March 26, 2022) – Two women were left injured as a result of a two-vehicle accident in Jefferson. Just before 11 a.m., on March 25, calls for assistance came in surrounding an auto collision on US Highway 67.
Reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol indicate that a collision between a 2008 Dodge Caliber and a 2015 Ford Escape occurred on the northbound side of US Highway 67 near Buck Creek Road.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured. EMS transported 73-year-old Elaine Sratton to Mercy Hospital Jefferson for the treatment of moderate injuries. The second victim, 19-year-old Jordyn Lawrence, was transported to Mercy Hospital Jefferson for care by private conveyance.
