Liberty Woman Ejected in Buchanan County Crash Saturday

A Liberty woman was injured in a Buchanan County accident Saturday afternoon.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on Pigeon Hill Road, two miles west of Agency, when a vehicle driven by 24-year-old Agency resident Kylie D. Rae was heading northbound.

Troopers say the vehicle struck a rut on an embankment, overturned, and came to a rest on the passenger’s side.

A passenger in the vehicle, 24-year-old Melissa N. Shanks, was ejected from the vehicle.

Shanks was taken by Lifenet to Mosaic in Saint Joseph for treatment.

Troopers say neither woman was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
