Ste Genevieve, MO (May 5, 2022) – Two people were left injured as a result of a traffic-related incident in Ste Genevieve. At around 6:53 a.m., on May 2, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to a crash on Route M.
Preliminary investigations show that a 2016 Ford F-150 pickup truck was traveling on Route M when it crossed over the center lines just south of Gisi Road. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2019 Toyota Highlander. The impact of the crash caused the Ford to go off the west side of the road and strike two road signs. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage and had to be towed from the scene.
Two people involved in the accident were injured. The first victim, 26-year-old Katelyn Battreal, was transported to Ste Genevieve County Memorial Hospital. The second victim, 65-year-old Donald Wilson, was transported by Ste Genevieve County ambulance to St. Francis Medical Center.
At this time, investigations to determine the cause of the crash are underway.
Our thoughts are with Donald Wilson and Katelyn Battreal at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
