KC: Driver injured in crash with semi on US-50 near Holden

JOHNSON COUNTY, MO — A 47-year-old man suffered minor injuries due to a crash Wednesday morning involving a tractor-trailer on U.S. Highway 50 near north Holden, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The collision took place on a stretch of US-50 east of State Highway 131 and southeast of Kansas City. It was first reported at 9:45 a.m.

Officials said a 47-year-old man from Paola, Kansas, was driving a 1998 Honda when he changed lanes and entered the path of a 2020 Peterbilt before striking the truck. The impact sent the Honda off the roadway where it then overturned.

While the crash report indicates that the driver received minor injuries in the event, he declined treatment at the scene.

The driver of the Peterbilt, a 69-year-old Shelbina resident, was not reported injured.
