Three-vehicle crash injures three
The crash happened just after 1:30 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 6 and Highway 63 on the Kirksville alternate route.
Kirksville police say the crash happened when an eastbound car, driven by Jacob Jeffrey, 23, of Kirksville, pulled from the stop sign into the path of a northbound car driven by Samantha Ackerman, 19, of Columbia. The Jeffrey car then spun around and struck a NEMO feed tanker truck driven by Wilmer Zieset, 35, of Edina.
Two passengers in the Jeffrey car, Christopher Allard, 21, and Jarrett Eiskina, 21, were both taken by ambulance to Northeast Regional Medical Center. Jacob Jeffrey was taken by private vehicle. The other passenger in the Jeffrey car was not injured.
Police say Jeffrey told them he just didn't see the northbound vehicle when he pulled out from the stop sign.
