Columbia Driver Causes Multiple Accidents After Fleeing the Scene
COLUMBIA - Units from the Columbia Police and Fire Departments were called to McBaine and West Worley Tuesday evening for a extrication accident. Investigators stated a male driver had rear ended a Ford pink up truck at the intersection of Sexton and Garth. The driver then left the scene of the accident and was struck by another car.
Fire Fighters arrived on the scene and found four vehicles were involved in a t-bone collision at the intersection. Crews stabilized the first vehicle and removed a male driver from a green 1999 Chrysler Sebring that had been t-boned while attempting to cross Worley. The driver was transported to University Hospital with life threatening injuries.
Investigators said the Sebring turned South on McBaine and after running the stop sign at Worley it was hit by the east bound Dodge Dakota. The impact of the collision then caused the Sebring to make contact with a fourth vehicle, a white 2003 Chevy Utility Truck that was north bound on McBaine at the intersection. The driver and the passenger of the utility truck were uninjured.
The Sebring was struck by a 2003 Dodge Dakota that was traveling on Worley. The passenger, a 27 year old female was also injured and transported to The University of Missouri Women and Children’s Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The driver and two children who were also in the vehicle had no injuries.
