Auburn woman injured in NW MO wreck

(KLZA)-- An Auburn, NE. woman suffered what the Missouri Highway Patrol described as moderate injuries in a two-vehicle wreck Friday night a mile west of Rock Port, Missouri on US Highway 136.

The report on the wreck indicates that 19-year-old Breanna Smith of Auburn was westbound, following a Toyota Highlander, driven by 85-year-old James Gerking of Brock, Nebraska and her car struck the rear of the Gerking vehicle.

Smiths car traveled off the north side of the highway and down an embankment coming to rest in a field. The Gerking vehicle came to a controlled stop.

Smith was transported by the Atchison Holt Ambulance to the Fairfax Community Hospital for treatment of her injuries.

Both vehicles suffered extensive damage in the wreck. The occupants of both vehicles were wearing safety devices at the time of the wreck.
