Morehouse, MO (May 19, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in New Madrid left one woman injured. At around 8:35 a.m., on May 16, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on US Highway 60.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 2018 Chevrolet 3500 pickup truck was traveling through the area of US Highway 60 and Highway E when the driver failed to yield the right-of-way to a 2017 Nissan Murano. As a result, the two vehicles collided.
The driver of the Nissan, 67-year-old Carol Kimball, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. Kimball was transported by ambulance to St. Francis and Cape Girardeau for emergency medical care.
At this time, Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
Our thoughts are with Carol Kimball at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
