The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported a two-vehicle accident in Johnson County Tuesday afternoon, that sent one woman to an area hospital.

The accident occurred around 3:30 on Highway 50 at MO-131.

A 2002 Toyota was traveling west on Highway 50, while a 2008 Jeep Wrangler was traveling north on MO-131. The Jeep began to cross the westbound lanes of Highway 50 at the intersection, when the driver failed to yield to the Toyota. This caused the Toyota to strike the passenger side of the Jeep.

The driver of the Jeep, 17-year-old Britteny A. Bruns, of Holden, was not injured in the accident. However, the driver of the Toyota, 58-year-old Barbara J. Karaty, of Bates City, suffered moderate injuries.

Karaty was taken to Research Medical Center, by JCAD, for treatment.
