A collision on Highway 6 near Ewing on Wednesday afternoon resulted in moderate injuries for a woman and saw a teenage driver walk away unharmed. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the accident occurred approximately a quarter mile west of Ewing at around 1:30 p.m.

The crash involved a 2010 Ford Fusion, driven by a 17-year-old male from La Grange, Missouri, and a 2005 Dodge Neon, operated by 44-year-old Ann M. Neisen of Lewistown, Missouri. The Missouri State Highway Patrol report stated that the Ford Fusion failed to yield and struck the Dodge Neon from behind. The impact caused extensive damage to the Ford Fusion, which had to be towed from the scene by Robert’s Garage. The Dodge Neon suffered minor damage but was driven from the scene.

The teen driver of the Ford Fusion was reported to be wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident and did not sustain any injuries. Ann M. Neisen, however, sustained moderate injuries in the collision. It is unclear whether Neisen was wearing a seat belt. She was transported by Lewis County Ambulance to Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Illinois, for treatment.

Trooper Wilgus was assisted by Trooper Leftwich and the Lewis County Sheriff’s Department.
