Marshall Man Killed Woman Seriously Injured In Three Vehicle Crash In Carroll County

A Marshall woman was killed and a male passenger in her vehicle was left with serious injuries in a three-vehicle crash Thursday in Carroll County.

According to the accident report from Troop A of the Highway Patrol, at 11:43 A.M. a 2008 Chevy Equinox being driven by 90-year-old Marshall resident Mildred M. Scott was heading northbound on Highway 65.

Scott reportedly tried to pass a 2017 Peterbilt tractor trailer but in doing so caused a head-on collisio0n with a 2007 Kenworth W900 being driven southbound by 51-year-old Tina, Missouri resident Mark Scholle. The report says the Scott vehicle then struck the Peterbilt truck as well.

Scott was transported by Life Flight to University Hospital in Columbia but succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead at 1:14 P.M.

A passenger in that vehicle, 83-year-old Marshall resident Willie Armstrong, suffered serious injuries. He was taken by Life Flight to Truman Medical Center in Kansas City for treatment.

No injuries were listed for the drivers of either semi.
