Lee’s Summit, MO (December 4, 2023) – A vehicle collision reported on Saturday in Jackson County sent a 53-year-old woman from Lone Jack, Missouri, to a local hospital for the treatment of injuries. The accident occurred at around 3:30 p.m. on December 2.
According to official reports, a 2001 Dodge Ram pickup truck was traveling on Missouri Route 7. The vehicle attempted to stop and began sliding down the roadway before crashing into the rear of a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe near Missouri Route 150. The impact of the collision caused the Chevrolet to strike a 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The driver of the Jeep, identified as Alicia Miller, was injured in the accident. She was transported by EMS to St. Luke’s Hospital, where she underwent emergency treatment. At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope Alicia Miller recovers quickly following this accident.
