Jefferson, MO (October 21, 2022) – A traffic collision reported in Jefferson County on Thursday morning left two people injured. On October 20, at around 8:15 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to a collision on US Highway 67.
According to local law enforcement, the driver of a 2003 Buick LeSabre was making a left turn onto Myers Road from the northbound side of US Highway 67 when it became involved in a collision with a 2014 Toyota Corolla. The impact of the crash sent the Toyota off the side of the roadway, where it struck a 2015 Ford edge. The Buick and Toyota were totaled as a result of the crash.
The drivers of both vehicles, 25-year-old Angelah McPherson of Festus, Missouri, and 62-year-old Kimberly Shooler of East St. Louis, Illinois, were both transported to Mercy Hospital in Jefferson, Missouri, for the treatment of moderate injuries.
Investigations to determine the cause of the collision are currently underway.
Our thoughts are with Angelah McPherson and Kimberly Shooler at this time.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle crashes take place every day in Missouri. Many of these accidents result in significant injuries for those involved. Car accidents are so common in Missouri for a number of reasons. First, the state has a large number of rural roads, which are more prone to accidents than urban roads.
Second, Missouri has a high number of teenage drivers, who are also more likely to be involved in accidents. Third, the state has a lot of tourist traffic, which can lead to congested roads and increased accident risk. Finally, Missouri weather is often unpredictable, and severe weather can make driving conditions more dangerous.
While driving in our state, it is important that you are alert and cautious. You must keep your eye out for other drivers who are engaging in reckless actions. Unfortunately, no matter how careful you are, you cannot prevent negligent motorists from causing crashes.
