Sedalian injured in three-car crash

A Sedalia woman was injured in a three-vehicle accident at noon Monday near the intersection of North U.S. Highway 65 and Eagleview Drive in Sedalia.

According to a Sedalia Police Department report, Donald L. Landreth, 78, of the 200 block of South Corder Street, was driving south on U.S. Highway 65 and he said he entered the intersection with Eagleview Drive when he had a green light. Once in the intersection, his vehicle struck a vehicle driven by Donna J. Contreras, 56, of the 24000 block of Georgetown Road. Landreth’s vehicle then veered to the northwest and struck a concrete light base.

Contreras told officers she was stopped at a red light waiting to cross U.S. 65 onto Eagleview. After getting a green light, she traveled north on U.S. 65 and was struck by Landreth in the intersection. Her vehicle then spun counter-clockwise and rolled into the northbound lane of U.S. 65. Her vehicle then struck another vehicle, driven by Norbert A. Brosch, 66, of the 22000 block of state Route HH.

Contreras sustained injury to her left ankle and complained of soreness in her chest. She was taken by Pettis County Ambulance District to Bothwell Regional Health Center. Landreth sustained injury to his arm, but refused treatment.
