Grain Valley, MO (May 29, 2022) – One man was left seriously injured as a result of a four-vehicle accident in the Jackson County area on Friday evening. Just before 5:40 p.m., on May 27, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a major collision took place on Interstate 70.
Preliminary investigations show that a 2012 Nissan Sentra was traveling on Interstate 70 when it attempted to change lanes near mile marker 26. The vehicle collided with a second vehicle on the roadway. The impact of the crash caused the Nissan to go off the roadway and collide with the guard rail. The vehicle then reentered the roadway and collided with another unknown vehicle before striking a 2022 Peterbilt.
The Nissan had to be towed from the scene due to the extent of damages.
One person involved in the accident suffered serious injuries. EMS transported 30-year-old Michael Dewitt to Centerpoint Medical Center for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Michael DeWitt at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
