1 injured in 3-car crash on MO-47 in Franklin Co.

UNION, MO – A three-car crash in rural Franklin County yesterday sent one person to the hospital, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The collision happened on northbound MO-47 near Timberland Drive in Union at about 7:25 a.m. Thursday. A 2008 Buick Lucerne had come to a stop to make a left-hand turn, causing the 2016 Nissan Juke behind it to slow as well. A 2013 GMC Savannah did not slow in time and collided with first the Juke and then the Lucerne before coming to a rest in the center divider.

The force of the crash was enough to total the Nissan, whose 46-year-old driver of the Juke was taken to Mercy Hospital Washington with moderate injuries.

The other two vehicles received extensive damage, but no one else appears to have been injured.
