Four Northwest Missouri residents suffered injuries in a Thursday morning crash in Platte County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred around 10:22 a.m. on Highway 152 and Northwest Hampton Road, as 48-year-old Platte City resident Kelly A. Rottinghaus drove eastbound.

Troopers say Rottinghaus struck the rear trailer bumper of another eastbound vehicle driven by 40-year-old Chillicothe resident Jeffery D. Gillespie.

Rottinghaus suffered minor injuries and sought treatment at Liberty Hospital.

Authorities reported no injuries for Gillespie.

Two of Gillespie’s passengers, Chillicothe residents 51-year-old Gary W. Karnes and 61-year-old Buddy R. Ewing, also suffered minor injuries and sought treatment at Liberty Hospital.

Troopers say everyone involved wore seat belts at the time of the crash.
