A pedestrian and two occupants of one vehicle were injured in an accident at 1:40 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 26, in Pike County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol in St. Louis reported the accident was in the southbound lanes of U.S. 61 at the Business 54 junction. Officers said a 1998 Jeep Cherokee was stopped in the passing lane, due to an accident ahead, and the driver had left the vehicle.
The state patrol said Alice K. Hawes, 77, of Keokuk, Iowa, was driving south and lost control of her 2005 Chevrolet Impala. The car went off the right side of the highway, hit a guardrail then returned to the road and hit the Jeep Cherokee.
This impact caused the Jeep to go off the left side of the road and hit a pedestrian and a guardrail. The pedestrian, Jason K. Stukenberg, 33, of Novelty, suffered serious injuries.
Hawes was not injured, but her passengers were injured. Jolynn Scott, 13, of Novelty, had moderate injuries. Linda J. Scott, 12, of Novelty, had minor injuries. All three were wearing safety devices.
Stukenberg and the Scott children all went by ambulance to Pike County Memorial Hospital in Louisiana.
