A 26-year old Warrensburg man was seriously injured early Wednesday morning in a three vehicle accident that occurred in Johnson County, MO.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported the wreck just before 7:00, on MO-23 just north of Route DD.

According to the online crash report, a Nissan Altima and a Nissan Titan were stopped in traffic, when a Dodge overtook and struck the rear of the Altima, which caused the Altima to strike the Titan.

The Dodge then struck the Titan, as the Altima traveled off the road and impacted a group of trees.

The driver of the Altima, 26-year old Russell Pagan, suffered serious injuries. Pagan was taken to Research Medical Center, by JCAD, for treatment.

The other drivers were reportedly uninjured.
