Three persons were taken to a hospital after an accident last night in Albany. The highway patrol described injuries as moderate for two drivers: 17 year old James Bell and 28 year old Alison Kreig-Runnels as well as her passenger, 29 year old John Runnels. Each of the Albany residents were taken by ambulance to Northwest Medical Center.
The highway patrol said a pickup driven by James Bell was westbound on U-S 136 when he attempted to make a left hand turn onto Missouri Highway 85 and apparently drove into the path of an eastbound car containing Mr and Mrs. Runnels.
After impact, the pickup ran off the south side of the highway, struck an embankment. The car rotated clockwise and came to a halt blocking both lanes of U-S 136.
The pickup received moderate damage while the car was demolished. Only the passenger was listed as wearing a seat belt.
