According to KRCG 13.
A Sturgeon woman was seriously injured when she was hit by a car as she was checking on people involved in an earlier crash.
It happened Wednesday afternoon on Highway 63 in Boone County at Route 124.
The first crash happened when Carol Malloy, 69, of Sturgeon, was trying to turn onto 63 from 124.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s online report, Malloy tried to cross the highway in the path of Christopher Pepin, 30, of Moberly.
Pepin’s Volkswagen Jetta hit the left side of Malloy’s Chevrolet Sonic.
Both Malloy and Pepin had moderate injuries.
Brenda Smith, 64, of Huntsville, was checking on the people involved in the crash.
She was standing by Malloy’s driver-side door when two vehicles approached the crash.
Jared Limback, 45, of Alma, MO, was driving a 2008 Kenworth W900.
Limback swerved to avoid the first crash when he hit the back of Malloy’s car.
The collision propelled the Chevy Sonic into Smith.
Limback’s truck then hit the Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Michael Reeves, 73, of Kirksville.
That sent the Jeep into the median.
Emergency crews took Smith to University Hospital.
Being involved in a car accident can be a terrifying experience, and sustaining a serious injury in the crash could make matters even worse. Due to the actions of a careless or reckless driver, you could face weeks or even months of recovery time for the injuries you sustained in a car accident. You should not have to take on additional stress and worry over the financial strain that your injury has caused.
