Lawson Woman Struck Friday Walking on Route U

A Lawson woman suffered injuries Friday in a Ray County crash as a pedestrian.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on Route U, just west of Lincoln Lane, when an unknown vehicle was heading eastbound.

Troopers say a female 40-year-old Lawson resident was walking in the eastbound lanes and was struck by the vehicle.

Authorities say the vehicle then left the scene of the accident and did not stop.

She suffered moderate injuries and was taken to Liberty Memorial Hospital for treatment.
