STL: Driver hurt in crash with Mack trash truck on State Hwy EE near NW Winfield

LINCOLN COUNTY, MO – A 35-year-old woman was sent to the hospital following a two-vehicle wreck late Tuesday morning on State Highway EE near northwest Winfield, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The accident unfolded at the intersection with Brown Lane and was first reported at around 11:23 a.m.

Officials say a 34-year-old man, a local resident, was driving a 2024 Mack Trash Truck westbound when he failed to yield to a 2016 GMC Yukon driven by the 35-year-old woman, of Foley. Shortly after, the front bumper of the GMC struck the Mack truck’s front passenger bumper. The impact sent the GMC off the east side of the roadway before it came to rest facing east.

Lincoln County Ambulance crews sent the driver of the GMC to Mercy Hospital Lincoln for injuries deemed minor.

The Mack truck sustained minor damage and was able to be driven from the scene, while the GMC, which received moderate damage, had to be towed from the area.

No charges were immediately confirmed in the crash report.
