New London, MO (May 13, 2022) – One woman was left with significant injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident that occurred in Ralls County on Tuesday afternoon, May 10. At around 12:20 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on US Highway 61.
Reports from authorities show that a collision between a 2017 Mack Truck and a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan occurred on US Highway 61 just one mile north of New London. The incident left both vehicles with significant damage, requiring them to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the Dodge, 74-year-old Marcia Powell, sustained moderate injuries in the crash. She was transported by Ralls County ambulance to Hannibal Regional Hospital for care.
