A Saint Joseph woman was injured Wednesday in a two-car accident in Buchanan County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on I-29, two miles south of Saint Joseph, when a vehicle driven by 49-year-old Leslie R. Stone was heading southbound.

Troopers say Stone crossed the center line and struck the towed unit of another southbound vehicle driven by 43-year-old Ellisville, Mississippi resident Kirby F. Post.

Stone’s vehicle would travel off the east side of the road, into the median, and strike a cable barrier before ultimately coming to a rest.

She was taken to Mosaic Life Care for treatment of moderate injuries.

No injury information was listed for Post.

Troopers say all involved were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
