Franklin, MO (September 24, 2022) – Authorities were dispatched to the side of the vehicle collision that occurred on Thursday evening in Franklin County. On September 22, calls for assistance came in surrounding a collision on Missouri State Route 47.

Reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that at 4:40 p.m., a 2017 Chevrolet Cruze, a 2013 Chevrolet Sonic, and a 2003 Ford focus were all stopped at the intersection of Missouri State Route 47 in Franklin Avenue as the driver of the Ford was preparing to make a left turn.

The driver of a 2013 Ford Focus failed to keep a proper lookout. As a result, the 2013 Ford Focus struck the rear of the Chevrolet Cruze. The impact of the crash caused the Cruze to strike the Sonic. The Sonic then crashed into the rear of the 2003 Ford Focus.

The driver of the Chevrolet Cruze, 45-year-old Daniel Hogan, was injured in the crash. Hogan, who is from Washington, Missouri, was transported by union ambulance district to Mercy Hospital in Washington, Missouri, for further care.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol is conducting a collision investigation at this time.

Our thoughts are with Daniel Hogan as we hope for his full recovery.
