Three from Thayer were injured last Friday afternoon in a two-vehicle accident at the city of Seymour’s east stoplight at the intersection of U.S. 60 and highways C and K, Trooper Z.C. Dudley of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said in a radio report.
Dudley’s report said the three who were injured include 70-year-old Frances Woodyard, 39-year-old Kimberly J. Woodyard and an unidentified 17-year-old female, all of whom were taken from the accident scene by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Springfield.
Kimberly Woodyard’s injuries were listed by the patrol as serious, while the injuries to Frances Woodyard and the 17-year-old female were listed as minor.
Dudley said the 4:19 p.m. accident occurred when Frances Woodyard, driving a westbound 2019 Toyota Camry car, “was stopped in traffic at a stoplight and was struck in the rear” by a westbound 2007 Volvo tractor-trailer driven by 53-year-old Marc A. Harrison of Maryland Heights.
All parties in the accident were wearing seatbelts, Dudley’s report added.
Both vehicles were towed from the accident scene by Yates Boys Towing of Seymour.
