LACLEDE COUNTY, Missouri- Two Lebanon teens were injured in a collision with another vehicle at an intersection south of Lebanon Saturday morning.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 17 year-old Karissa Deslongchamps was transported by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Springfield with moderate injuries. Christopher Pendergrass, 18, who was driving suffered minor injuries and sought his own treatment according to the report.
Troopers say the crash occurred when the teens struck a truck driven by Chester Lowery, 47, from Lebanon when he failed to yield at Oasis Drive and Canary Road. Lowery was unhurt as his vehicle was hit in the side.
The report said Pendergrass was not wearing a seatbelt.
Trooper Southwood responded at 10:05 a.m. and was assisted by Troopers Clement and Conway.
