Multi-Car Crash on Highway 40 Backs Up Traffic
Police tell Patch an "inattentive" driver near a MoDOT work area likely caused the crash Monday afternoon.
According to police, multiple cars were involved in the accident that caused a "considerable back up" in traffic. Authorities tell Patch an inattentive driver likely caused the crash.
According to police, there was already congestion in the area caused by MoDOT roadwork shutting down a lane of traffic and a motorist who was not paying attention may have caused the crash.
Three people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Town and Country police.
The accident scene has since been cleared.
