Franklin, MO (September 21, 2022) – A 44-year-old woman from Villa Ridge, Missouri, was transported to Mercy Hospital in Washington, Missouri, following a motor vehicle accident in Franklin County. At approximately 5:40 p.m., on September 18, trooper J Langley with the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to a collision on Missouri State Route 100.
Reports surrounding the crash show that a 2010 Chevrolet Impala was traveling eastbound on Missouri State Route 100.
