Three motorists, all from out of state, sustained injuries that required transport to Cox Medical Center South in Springfield after a two-vehicle accident early last Saturday morning at the intersection of U.S. 60 and Highway A in Diggins, about five miles west of Seymour.
Cpl. T.V. Mosley of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said the accident occurred at 9:18 a.m. when a southbound 2016 Nissan Frontier truck, driven by 75-year-old Raymond E. Kish of Easley, S.C., “failed to yield” at the volatile intersection and struck westbound 2016 Dodge Ram truck that was driven by Wilson L. Nieves, 50, of Quarryville, Penn.
Kish’s injuries were the most severe, per the patrol. They were listed as serious in Mosley’s report.
A passenger in Kish’s truck, 71-year-old Linda K. Kish, also of Easley, S.C., had injuries reported by the patrol as moderate.
Nieves’ sustained minor injuries, the patrol report said.
All three were taken by ambulance to Cox South.
Mosley’s report said all three who were injuries were wearing their seatbelts. Both trucks had automobile insurance, the report added.
Both vehicles were removed from the accident scene by Yates Boys Towing of Seymour.
