Warrensburg, MO (May 19, 2023) – Three women were left injured as a result of an automobile accident that took place in Johnsen County on Thursday evening, May 18.
At around 4:40 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a crash that took place on Missouri State Highway 13.
Reports from authorities show that a 2011 GMC Yukon was stopped on the southbound side of Missouri State Highway 13 while waiting to make a left turn onto YY Highway. For reasons unknown, the vehicle was struck in the rear by a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck. The impact of the crash forced the GMC into the northbound lane, where he collided with a 2010 Honda Insight.
The drivers of all three vehicles suffered injuries. EMS responded to the scene to transport 28-year-old Hailee Brown and 42-year-old Regina Harrelson to Western Missouri Medical Center. The third victim, 55-year-old Lesley Asher, was transported to Centerpoint Hospital. All of the victims were admitted with moderate injuries.
At this time, the incident is being investigated.
We hope Hailee Brown, Regina Harrelson, and Lesley Asher recover quickly following this accident.
