Jackson Township, MO (May 3, 2022) – Authorities in Jasper County were dispatched to the scene of a major motor vehicle accident that left several people injured. At around 5:55 p.m., on April 30, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Route HH.

Reports provided by authorities show that a 2020 Jeep Gladiator attempted to make a right turn at Route HH. At the same time, a 2004 Dodge Ram struck the rear of a 2012 Nissan Altima. The impact of the crash sent the Nissan across the center line, where it struck a 2006 Honda Ridgeline. The Honda then overturned off the side of the road and struck the Jeep. The Jeep then crashed into a stop sign.

Several people involved in the accident were injured. EMS transported 27-year-old Zachary Nichols and 53-year-old Kathi Lee to Mercy Hospital in Carthage for care. Three other victims, 20-year-old Elijah Housh, 82-year-old Florence Thomas, and 84-year-old Lawrence Thomas, were transported to Freeman West Hospital in Joplin.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Elijah Housh, Zachary Nichols, Kathi Lee, Florence Thomas, and Lawrence Thomas at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
