MO: 4 hospitalized after multi-vehicle crash on US-65 in Taney County

TANEY COUNTY, MO – Four people were injured, one seriously, Thursday afternoon as a result of a three-vehicle collision on U.S. Highway 65 near northeast Ridgedale, reports the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The accident happened at the intersection with State Route 86, about a mile northeast of the city, at about 2:50 p.m.

Preliminary details show a 27-year-old man from Omaha, Arkansas, was driving a 2003 Ford Taurus southbound when he failed to stop for a steady red signal, causing the car to hit an eastbound 2014 Chevrolet Impala operated by a 76-year-old woman from Wyomissing, Pennsylvania. The impact of that crash caused the Impala to strike an eastbound 2014 Ford Mustang, driven by a 61-year-old Kirbyville man.

Officials said the wreck left the driver of the Impala with serious injuries. Three of her passengers, two men and a woman all aged 77, sustained minor injuries. All occupants were transported to Cox South Hospital in Springfield.

The MSHP crash report indicates that the Ford and the Impala were both totaled and had to be towed from the crash site. The Mustang received moderate damage and was able to be driven from the scene.

It’s unclear at this time whether the driver of the Ford Taurus is expected to be charged or cited.
