One individual sustained severe injuries in a Moniteau County collision on Monday


One individual sustained severe injuries in a Moniteau County collision on Monday, near the junction of Lookout Trail and East Railroad Road, as reported by the Missouri State Highway Patrol. The incident unfolded when a 2012 Ford F-150, operated by Tyler Fairfax, 24 years old, from Jamestown, came to a halt to make a left turn onto East Railroad Road, according to the official crash report.

Tragically, a 2007 Chrysler 300, driven by Kristian Kennedy, 35, of Jefferson City, failed to stop in time and rear-ended the Ford, as detailed in the report. As a result of the impact, the Ford skidded and came to a rest partially off the roadway.

Regrettably, Andrew Chapman, a passenger in Kennedy’s vehicle and a resident of Jefferson City, aged 33, suffered severe injuries and was subsequently transported to SSM St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City, as outlined in the report. Disturbingly, it was revealed that neither Kennedy nor Chapman were wearing seatbelts during the collision. Additionally, the report notes that the Chrysler was deemed totaled due to the extent of the damage sustained. Although the Ford suffered extensive damage, it was still operable and driven from the scene. Notably, Tyler Fairfax was wearing a seatbelt, which likely played a crucial role in his safety during the incident.
