Memphis Woman Survives Collision With Two Tractor Trailers
Lisa L. Dalton of Memphis escaped this vehicle with moderate injuries after a crash with two semis.
Traffic on Highway 15 north of Memphis was at a standstill much of Wednesday morning as the road was closed following a three-vehicle accident that left a Memphis woman with moderate injuries.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Lisa L. Dalton, 19, was southbound on Highway 15 in a 1996 Ford Explorer when her vehicle crossed the center line and side swiped a northbound 2003 Peterbuilt tractor trailer driven by Jody J. Small of Memphis.
Dalton's vehicle spun out in the roadway and was struck in the passenger side by a northbound 2000 Volvo tractor trailer driven by Randall E. Dare, 38, of Canton. The Dalton vehicle traveled off the left side of the roadway and overturned. Dare's semi traveled off the right side of the roadway and jackknifed into a ditch.
Dalton sustained moderate injuries in the crash. She was taken by Scotland County Ambulance to Scotland County Hospital in Memphis.
Dare and Small were uninjured in the crash.
The Dalton vehicle sustained total damage as did the Volvo semi driven by Dare. Small's tractor trailer sustained moderate damage.
The crash occurred at 6:45 a.m. on October 16th approximately eight miles north of Memphis.
Lakeside Towing of Memphis removed the Dalton vehicle and the Dare tractor trailer from the scene. Small's rig was driven from the scene.
The Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Scotland County Sheriff's Office, the Missouri Department of Transportation, Scotland County Fire Department and Scotland County Ambulance service.
