Two Injured in Business 71 Crash South of Savannah

Two area residents were injured in an accident Monday evening just south of Savannah.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on Business 71, two miles south of Savannah, when a vehicle driven by 76-year-old Saint Joseph resident Wilson D. Fletcher was heading northbound.

Troopers say a vehicle driven by 27-year-old Savannah resident Kyndria E. Lucas pulled into the path of Fletcher’s vehicle attempting to enter the road from a median crossover.

Lucas suffered moderate injuries and was taken to Mosaic Life Care, in Saint Joseph, for treatment.

Troopers say Fletcher was treated on scene.

Authorities say both were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.
