2 injured when speeding car hits trailer in Farmington

FARMINGTON, MO – A speeding driver injured himself and his passenger when he drove into a semi-towed trailer on US 67 in Farmington, MSHP reports.

State troopers say that 30-year-old Trevor Biri was driving too fast for conditions, which caused him to lose control of his 2011 Infiniti X37 while negotiating a turn near Route H. The Infiniti’s front passenger side collided with the rear axel of a trailer being towed by a 2019 Freightliner, seriously injuring 21-year-old Kitara Milinski. She was taken by helicopter to Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

Biri escaped with only minor injuries. It is unclear whether he will face criminal charges.

The truck’s driver was unhurt.
