California Woman Injured in Rear-End Collision
A California woman was injured in a two-vehicle accident that occurred Sunday in Moniteau County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that two vehicles were traveling east on Highway 50 west of Wieneke Branch around 12:15 p.m.. One of them, a 1995 Ford F-350, driven by 56-year-old Mary L. Hoellering of California, was slowed down behind farm equipment, when a 2020 Ford Fusion, driven by 54-year-old Bethany A. Patten of New Bloomfield, failed to see the situation or slow down, and slammed into the rear of the F-350. The Fusion began skidding and traveled off the right side of the road. The F-350 was brought to a controlled stop on the shoulder.
Hoellering suffered moderate injuries, and was transported to St. Mary's Hospital by Mid-Mo Ambulance for treatment.
The Fusion had moderate damage, while the F-350 was totaled.
