Categorized as Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

Franklin, MO (May 23, 2022) – An auto accident took place in the Franklin area that left one woman injured. At around 5:33 p.m., on May 19, emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Interstate 44.

Reports from local authorities show that a collision between a 2011 International and a 2011 Nissan Murano occurred on the westbound side of the interstate near mile marker 247. The impact of the crash caused the Nissan to travel off the right side of the roadway and strike a guardrail. The Nissan then traveled over to the left side of the roadway and struck a median barrier.

The driver of the Nissan, 66-year-old Donna Kagy, sustained injuries in the accident. She was transported by Union Ambulance District to Mercy Hospital in Washington for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Donna Kagy at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
