A three-vehicle collision occurred this morning on Highway 63, approximately one mile north of Kirksville, Missouri. The incident, reported at 7:28 a.m., involved a 2018 Chevrolet Cruze, a 2005 Hyundai Elantra, and a 2012 Ford Fiesta.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the Chevrolet Cruze, driven by 73-year-old Connie S. Kron from La Plata, Missouri, was traveling northbound in the southbound lane. This resulted in a head-on collision with the Hyundai Elantra, driven by 39-year-old Amanda L. Kimbrell from Lancaster, Missouri. The impact pushed the Elantra backward, causing it to collide with the Ford Fiesta, driven by a 17-year-old female from Greentop, Missouri.
