MO: 3 juveniles, 2 adults hurt in crash after pickup truck fails to yield in Andrew County

ANDREW COUNTY, MO – Five people, including three children, were hospitalized Tuesday evening following a two-vehicle collision west of Savannah, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The accident unfolded on a span of State Highway T about two miles west of the city, at about 5:40 p.m. Multiple area agencies, including the Andrew County Sheriff’s Department, the Savannah Police Department, the Savannah Fire Department, and the Andrew County EMS, all joined MSHP troopers at the scene.

Officials say a 40-year-old woman from Savannah was driving a 2003 Pontiac Grand AM westbound on the highway when she approached an intersection. A 72-year-old Kansas City man was driving a 2023 Ford F-150 northbound when he failed to yield to the Pontiac causing the Ford to hit the driver’s side of the Pontiac.

The impact of the crash sent the Pontiac off the north side of the roadway, where it came to a stop with its wheels facing southeast. The Ford F-150 came to rest in the roadway with its wheels facing northwest.

From the Pontiac, three juvenile passengers–ages 8, 12, and 14–and the female driver were transported to Mosaic St. Joseph for minor injuries.

The driver of the Ford, who also suffered minor injuries, was taken to the same hospital.

The Pontiac and the Ford sustained total and extensive damages, respectively.

No charges have been reported at this time.
