St. Joseph Woman Injured in Back-to-Back Crashes Monday

A Saint Joseph woman was injured in a Monday morning crash in Platte County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on I-29, south of 64th Street, as a vehicle driven by 37-year-old Katie L. Schweder was heading southbound.

Troopers say Schweder swerved to avoid collision with another vehicle, traveled off the roadway, and struck a concrete barrier.

Authorities report Schweder’s vehicle was struck again a short time later while stopped in the left lane.

She was taken to Saint Luke’s North for treatment of minor injuries.

Troopers say Schweder was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
