A Lee’s Summit woman suffered injuries in a Caldwell County crash Saturday evening.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports the accident occurred around 7:35 Saturday night on U.S. 36, four miles east of Cameron, as 40-year-old Tucson, Arizona, resident Artem A. Vovk drove westbound.

Troopers say the front of Vovk’s tractor-trailer struck the rear of a Dodge truck driven by 54-year-old Lee’s Summit resident Mark S. Caster.

A passenger in the Dodge, 53-year-old Kristine A. Caster, suffered minor injuries and sought treatment at Cameron Regional Medical Center.

Authorities say all involved wore seat belts at the time of the crash.
