Ellsinore, MO (May 10, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in the Ellsinore area sent multiple victims to area hospitals with injuries. At around 12:48 p.m., on May 8, emergency crews were dispatched to the site of a crash on US Highway 60.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche was traveling on US Highway 60 west just six miles east of Ellsinore. For unknown reasons, the vehicle failed to yield the right of way to a 2019 Jeep Renegade. As a result, the two vehicles collided.
A total of five people in the Jeep were injured. EMS transported a 5-year-old male, a 9-year-old female, 28-year-old Aaron Shemonia, and 29-year-old Catherine Sertl to Poplar Bluff Regional Medical Center for care. A 7-year-old female was transported by air ambulance to St Louis Children’s Hospital.
At this time, the cause of the crash is under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Catherine Sertl, Aaron Shemonia, and the three children injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
