Two Sedalians Injured in Pettis County Crash
Two Sedalians were injured in a two-vehicle accident that occurred Monday night in Pettis County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that an eastbound 2014 Harley Davidson, driven by 50-year-old Charles E. McGinnis of Sedalia, was stopped at a red light at US 50 and Sadie Lane (MM) around 7:30 p.m., when an eastbound 2015 Kia Optima, driven by 19-year-old Brady D. Carr of Clinton, struck the Harley from behind.
Both McGinnis and his passenger, 32-year-old Katherine (Katy) J. Williams of Sedalia, were ejected from the bike, which came to rest in the intersection. The Kia traveled off the right side of the roadway, down an embankment and struck a ditch.
McGinnis and Williams both suffered serious injuries. Williams was transported by PCAD, while McGinnis was flown by air ambulance to University Hospital in Columbia for treatment.
Both vehicles had extensive damage and were towed from the scene by InMotion.
Pettis County Deputies assisted the Patrol.
