MO: Young child sent to hospital after collision on MO-63 in Howell County

HOWELL COUNTY, MO — A 5-year-old passenger was injured Thursday morning as a result of a two-vehicle crash on State Highway 63 near Willow Springs, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The accident was reported at 9:50 a.m. on the northbound lanes of MO-63, about two miles southeast of the city.

Preliminary details show an 84-year-old woman from Willow Springs was driving a 2000 Ford Escort northbound when she drove into the path of a 2012 Toyota Camry, which was also traveling northbound. The Ford then collided with the side of the Toyota, which was driven by a 54-year-old West Plains man.

While neither driver was reported hurt, a passenger in the Ford Escort, described by the MSHP as a 5-year-old girl, was transported by ambulance to Ozarks Healthcare in West Plains for minor injuries.

Both vehicles sustained only minor damage and were able to be driven from the crash site.
