Two Injured in La Monte Crash
A Canadian man and a Warrensburg man were injured in a two-vehicle accident that occurred Monday night in La Monte.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a northbound 2009 Infinity G37, driven by Jason S. Mege of Innisfail, Alberta Canada, attempted to cross the westbound lanes of US 50 at Pleasant Green Road around 9 p.m., and pulled into the path of a westbound 2013 Chevy Cruze, driven by 29-year-old Rylan T. Collett of Warrensburg.
The Cruze struck the Infinity, which traveled off the right side of the roadway, struck a sign and came to rest. The infinity continued north and came to rest on the left side of Pleasant Green.
Menge suffered minor injuries and was transported by PCAD to Western Missouri Medical Center for treatment. He was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, according to the report.
Collett suffered minor injuries, and was also transported to Western Missouri Medical Center.
Both vehicles had extensive damage. The Cruze was towed by InMotion, while the Infinity was towed by Don's.
Pettis County Deputies assisted the Patrol.
