Branson, MO (May 10, 2022) – A crash that occurred in Taney County left two people injured. At around 7:35 a.m., on May 9, calls for assistance came in surrounding an auto accident on Route F.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox failed to yield the right of way to a 2021 Toyota RAV4 while making a left turn from Route F onto US Highway 65. As a result, the two vehicles collided.
Both vehicles sustained significant damage. The two vehicles had to be towed from the scene by Jims Towing. Crews closed off a portion of the roadway while working to clear debris from the scene.
Two people involved in the crash were injured. EMS transported 60-year-old Barbara Dinger and 68-year-old Brenda Tougaw to Cox Branson Hospital in Branson, Missouri for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Barbara Dinger and Brenda Tougaw at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
