Two Injured When Trailblazer Strikes Bridge Three Times
Two people were injured in a one-vehicle accident that occurred Wednesday night in Henry County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a northbound 2008 Chevy Trailblazer, driven by 33-year-old Cynthia L. Willcockson of Chilhowee, was on Missouri 13, north of Route Z just before 10 p.m., when the vehicle traveled off the right shoulder and struck a bridge (over Cooper Creek). The Chevy then returned to the roadway, crossed the center line and struck the left side of the bridge. The Chevy then crossed back to the other side and struck the bridge again and came to rest.
Willcockson and her passenger, 38-year-old Dane M. Onnen of Harrisonville, both suffered moderate injuries, and were transported to Golden Valley Memorial Hospital by Golden Valley EMS for treatment. Neither were wearing their seat belt at the time of the crash, according to the report.
The Chevy was totaled and towed from the scene.
Henry County Deputies assisted the Patrol.
