Categorized as Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

Lincoln, MO (September 8, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported on Tuesday morning in Lincoln County left a 56-year-old woman injured. At around 9:45 a.m., on September 6, Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper A Borgic responded to a two-vehicle wreck that blocked US Highway 61.

Reports of the collision indicate that a 2012 Volvo S60 was traveling in the area of US Highway 61 and Route B during the morning hours. For reasons unknown, the driver of the Volvo failed to yield the right of way to a 2019 Dodge Ram 5500. As a result, the two vehicles collided.

A 56-year-old woman involved in the crash, identified as Gonia Kelsey, was injured. Kelsey, who is from Elsberry, Missouri, was transported by Lincoln County EMS to SSM Health St Joseph Hospital Lake St Louis for further treatment.

Crash investigations are underway at this time by MSHP.

We hope Gonia Kelsey is able to recover quickly from her injuries.
