Missouri Lawmaker in Critical Condition after Car Crash
A Missouri lawmaker from the Kansas City area has been hospitalized following a car accident.
University Hospital confirmed that Lee’s Summit Republican Rep. Rebecca S. Roeber was in critical condition as of Tuesday morning.
Missouri State Highway Patrol records show the 60 year old was driving eastbound on U.S. 50 around noon on Monday at Syracuse when her 2002 Subaru Legacy crossed the center line. She hit an oncoming 2008 Audi traveling west.
The 58-year-old man driving the other car, Richard R. Clark of Kansas City, was taken to Bothwell Regional Health Center in Sedalia for minor injuries.
Roeber has been hospitalized in Columbia since Monday.
Both vehicles were totaled and towed. Both drivers were wearing a safety device, according to the report.
Morgan County deputies assisted the Patrol at the scene.
