MO: Multi-vehicle crash in Oregon County leaves 2 seriously hurt

OREGON COUNTY, MO – Two drivers suffered serious injuries as a result of a three-vehicle wreck Thursday evening on U.S. Highway 63 near Koshkonong, reports the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The collision took place about two miles north of the city and was first reported at around 7:36 p.m.

Officials say a 71-year-old man was behind the wheel of a 2005 Buick Lacrosse traveling northbound when the vehicle veered past the centerline of the roadway, causing its driver’s side to sideswipe the front of a 2002 Chevrolet Express. Debris that came off the Buick then struck the front-end of a 2013 Toyota Tacoma.

The driver of the Buick, who sustained serious injuries, was transported to Cox South Hospital in Springfield, Missouri, by Survival Flight.

The driver of the Chevrolet, a 40-year-old woman from Central Point, Oregon, was also seriously hurt. She was transported by Oregon County Ambulance to Ozarks Healthcare in West Plains, Missouri.

As a result of the multi-vehicle accident, the Chevrolet and the Buick were both totaled and had to be towed. The Toyota Tacoma received only minor damage and was able to be driven from the scene.

No charges or citations were immediately reported.
