Houston, TX (May 25, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Texas County left several people injured on Sunday evening, May 22. At around 6:10 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Highway E.
Reports provided by authorities show that a collision between a 2009 Lincoln MKS and a 2011Hyundai Elantra occurred on Highway E at the intersection of Strawberry Road. The crash caused delays just 5 miles north of Houston. Both vehicles were totaled as a result of the crash and had to be towed from the scene.
A total of four people involved in the accident were injured. Emergency medical services rendered aid to three males, all 17 years of age, and an 18-year-old male, Shaun Dryer, at the scene. The four victims were then transported to Texas County Memorial Hospital for emergency medical care.
