Jefferson, MO (March 2, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in the Jefferson area sent two men to area hospitals with injuries. At around 3:40 p.m., on February 28, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash on Route CC.
Reports from MSHP Trooper D Crowell show that a 2005 Dodge Ram pickup truck was traveling on Route CC when it attempted to stop for a crossing goose just south of Plattin Road.
For unknown reasons, a 2002 Dodge Intrepid crashed into the rear of the vehicle.
Two people involved in the accident were injured. Both 36-year-old Bobby West and 47-year-old James Pruitt were transported to Mercy Hospital Jefferson for emergency care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
