I-70 Crash Injures Two Sedalia Women
Two Sedalia women were injured in a two-vehicle crash on I-70 that occurred Tuesday afternoon in Cooper County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a westbound 2007 Ford Edge, driven by 28-year-old Kimberly E. Cline of Sedalia, was traveling in the driving lane with a blown tire at a very slow speed around 1 p.m., on I-70 at the 111-mile marker, when a westbound 2019 Peterbilt, driven by 51-year-old Charles K. Bishop of Yelm, Washington, attempted to avoid, but struck the rear of the Ford.
The Peterbilt traveled off the right side of the roadway and struck a guardrail, a concrete box culvert and a large MoDOT highway sign.
Kimberly and her mother, 56-year-old Carolyn Cline of Sedalia, suffered moderate injuries, and were transported by ambulance to University Hospital in Columbia for treatment. Neither were wearing a seat belt, according to the report.
Both vehicles were totaled.
Cooper County Deputies assisted the three Troopers on scene.
