Gower Woman Injured in Buchanan County Crash Thursday

A Gower woman was injured in a Thursday morning crash in Buchanan County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on U.S. 169, five miles north of Gower, as a vehicle driven by 42-year-old Melissa D. Nauman was heading northbound.

Troopers say Nauman came to a stop, due to a deer crossing the roadway, and was struck in the rear by another northbound vehicle.

Nauman was taken to Mosaic Life Care, in Saint Joseph, for treatment of moderate injuries.

Troopers say all involved were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
