A 43-year-old Seymour woman was involved Saturday in a three-vehicle accident on U.S. 60 in Republic that left five people injured.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said in a radio report that Carla A. Smith of Seymour was northbound in a 2006 Chevrolet HHR car when she “attempted to travel north from Harrison Street and cross the east and westbound lanes of U.S. 60.”
Smith’s car struck a westbound 2003 Honda Pilot driven by Dustin R. Orman, 32, of Republic, which was westbound on U.S. 60. Orman’s Honda was knocked into the path of an eastbound 2005 Kenworth W900 driven by 63-year-old Johnny D. Clover of Billings, also on U.S. 60.
Three troopers from the patrol worked the 2:33 p.m. accident, and they were assisted by the Republic Police Department.
Injured were Orman and two passengers in his Honda.
Orman, 37-year-old Tamalina R. McCall and his 7-year-old daughter, Caillch, each of whom sustained serious injuries and were taken by ambulance to Cox Medical Center South in Springfield. Another passenger, 4-year-old Faith Orman, had minor injuries and also was taken to Cox South.
A passenger in Clover’s Kenworth, 17-year-old Alivia B. Clover, had minor injuries and was taken to Cox South.
The patrol report said Clover and Orman had automobile insurance, while Smith had no insurance.
