Five Injured in Missouri Accident
In a three-vehicle accident that occurred at around 5:00 p.m. Monday evening, five individuals were hospitalized. The accident, which took place just South of Cameron, Missouri involved a passenger car and two motorcycles. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, one motorcycle was driven by a 56-year-old who had his 14-year-old daughter as a passenger and the other was driven by a 51-year-old who also had his 14-year-old daughter as a passenger. All four cyclists were transported via ambulance to Cameron Regional Medical Center. The car occupant, a 22-year-old female, was also transported to CRMC by ambulance.
The accident took place on U.S. Highway 69 at 326th street near Cameron, Missouri. The driver of the automobile was making a left turn off of 326th street onto U.S. 69 north in her 2010 Chevrolet Impala. At this time, she pulled directly into the path of a 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle that was headed southbound. The motorcycle was unable to stop in such short time and struck the rear of the car. The second motorcycle was trailing the first and struck the rear of the first motorcycle, coming to rest in the southbound lane. All four motorcycle occupants were ejected and one driver was then trapped beneath his motorcycle. Information on the severity of the injuries has not yet been released. Prayers go out to the all of those involved as they face recovery from this horrific accident.
