Two people injured in wreck on U.S. Highway 50


The Missouri State Highway Patrol states two people received minor injuries from a wreck at 10:05 p.m. June 17 in the eastbound lanes of U.S. Highway 50, west of Northwest 500th Road.

The patrol states the single-vehicle wreck occurred when Selena I. Howerton, 19, Higginsville, steered her 2004 Nissan Maxima right to avoid a collision with a vehicle going the wrong direction on the highway and lost control of the Maxima causing it to run off the right side of the roadway, strike an embankment and overturn.

The MSHP states Howerton and an occupant, Arika M. Striegel, 20, Holts Summit, wore safety devices and both received minor injuries.

The patrol states both Howerton and Striegel were transported to Western Missouri Medical Center.
