Neosho, MO (May 29, 2022) – One person was left with injuries following a two-vehicle accident in Neosho on Friday afternoon. At around 12:25 p.m., on May 27, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Highway D.
Reports from MSHP Cpl GH Hendrix show that a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer made a left turn in front of a 2020 Subaru Outback while traveling on Highway D just four miles east of Neosho. As a result, the two vehicles collided.
The driver of the Subaru, 41-year-old Elizabeth Crowe, sustained injuries in the crash. She was transported by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Joplin for care.
At this time, the circumstances surrounding the accident are under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Elizabeth Crowe at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Tens of thousands of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents in the state of Missouri. Roughly 80% of these crashes are a result of drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions while operating their vehicles. Some of the most common causes of auto collisions in Missouri include:
- drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol operating their vehicles
- drivers who failed to yield the right of way to other motorists traveling nearby
- drivers who switch lanes without looking or in a reckless manner
- drivers who are distracted by their cell phones, food, or other objects or people
When motorists engage in reckless and negligent actions, they place the lives of others sharing the road at risk. Unfortunately, we see a significant number of people injured in accidents across our state every year.
