Jefferson, MO (September 5, 2022) – Calls for assistance came to the Missouri State Highway Patrol regarding a vehicle collision that took place on Friday evening in the Jefferson area. At around 7:30 p.m., on September 2, trooper A Leroux with the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to a crash that took place on Route F in Jefferson.
Reports of the accident show that a 2002 Honda Civic crashed into the rear of a 2021 Toyota RAV4. The incident occurred on Route F, just north of Buena Vista Drive. MS HP and firefighters blocked the intersection while working to clear the area.
An 83-year-old man involved in the accident was injured. Medics provided care to Lonie Kelley at the scene before transporting him to SSM Health St. Clare Hospital, where he was provided further treatment.
Investigations into the cause of the crash are underway at this time by MSHP.
We hope Lonie Kelley recovers quickly from his injuries.
