At 2:11 p.m. on Oct. 6, the Page County Sheriff’s Office responded to a two-vehicle accident with injuries at the intersection of Highway 2 and Highway 59. The investigation showed that Denise Renee Bryant, 60, of Coin, was operating a 2011 Mercury Milan southbound on Highway 59. She was the only person in the vehicle.
The sheriff’s office said Bryant was attempting to make a left turn onto eastbound Highway 2. Carol Lynn Kirkpatrick, 57, of Westboro, Missouri, was operating a 2014 Jeep Cherokee northbound on highway 59. Helen Marie Settles, 57, of Westboro, Missouri, was a passenger in the Kirkpatrick vehicle.
Bryant told authorities that she was looking at an ambulance that was stopped at the eastbound stop sign of the intersection on Highway 2, waiting for traffic to clear. The ambulance did not have any emergency lights activated. Bryant turned east from Highway 59 into the path of Kirkpatrick’s vehicle.
The Cherokee’s front passenger side portion struck the front passenger side fender/front end of the Bryant’s Milan. The Bryant vehicle spun around, coming to rest in the northbound lane/shoulder part of Highway 59 north of Highway 2. The Kirkpatrick vehicle veered in a northeast direction, coming to rest in the east ditch of Highway 59 north of the Highway 2 intersection. It appears that both vehicles went over the westbound Highway 2 stop sign of the intersection.
All three parties were transported to Shenandoah Memorial Hospital for undisclosed injuries.
Bryant was cited for failure to yield upon left turn.
The Page County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by Clarinda Ambulance service, the Shenandoah Ambulance service, the Shenandoah Police department, the Shenandoah Fire Department, and the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office.
