Oak Grove, MO (May 27, 2022) – One man was left with injuries as a result of a two-vehicle accident that took place in Jackson County. Around 3:20 p.m., on May 24, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 70.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 2018 Ford was traveling on the westbound side of Interstate 70 when the vehicle began to slow down for a crash ahead on the roadway near mile marker 25.4. For unknown reasons, the vehicle was struck by a 2019 Chevrolet.
The driver of the Ford, 30-year-old Joseph Martinez, sustained injuries as a result of the accident. Martinez was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Blue Springs by EMS. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Joseph Martinez at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
