A 33-year-old Sedalia woman was killed and two teenagers were injured following a three-vehicle crash Saturday afternoon in Pettis County.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the driver of a 1990 Ford was traveling behind a 2013 Toyota when the driver of the Toyota slowed to yield to an oncoming vehicle at a narrow bridge. The driver of the Ford attempted to avoid the Toyota and swerved into the oncoming lane. The Ford struck the Toyota on the driver’s side and struck a 2007 Saturn head-on. The Saturn went off the roadway and struck a ditch.
The driver of the Saturn, was taken to an area hospital where she was pronounced deceased. Her teenage passenger, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The 16-year-old driver of the Ford was treated on the scene for minor injuries, and the driver of the Toyota was reported to not have any injuries.
