Four Injured in JoCo Accident
Four people were injured in a two-vehicle accident that occurred Monday night in Johnson County.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a westbound 2015 Kia, driven by 27-year-old Blake D. Lowry of Warrensburg, turned onto US 50 just after 9 p.m. at 501 NE 501 Road, and into the path of a westbound 2007 Mercury, driven by 19-year-old Zachary R. Gregory of Big Sandy, Texas. Gregory was unable to avoid striking the Kia in the rear.
The Mercury came to rest in the right lane of 50, while the Kia traveled off the right side of the road, spun out and struck a fence.
Lowry and Gregory suffered minor injuries, as did passengers in the Mercury, 19-year-old Orionna A. Colliver of Warrensburg, and 19-year-old Faith L. Franklin-Woodward of Clinton. The passengers were not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, according to the report.
All were transported to Western Missouri Medical Center for treatment by private vehicle.
The Kia had extensive damage, while the Mercury was totaled.
Johnson County Deputies assisted the Patrol.
