Five hurt in Pettis County crash

A female infant from Pekin, Illinois; a 1-year-old female from Pekin, Illinois; Jennifer L. Catt, 29, of Pekin, Illinois; Tammy L. Mincey, 51; and Paul W. Nash, 41, of Liberty, all received minor injuries at 7:53 a.m. Wednesday in a Pettis County accident.

According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, a 2019 Freightliner Cascadia driven by Cameron M. Galloway, 33, of Sycamore, Illinois, was southbound on U.S. Highway 65, as was a 2019 Nissan Pathfinder driven by Mincey. As they slowed for a red light, the Pathfinder was struck in the rear by a 2009 Subaru Forester driven by Nash, which pushed the Pathfinder into the Cascadia's trailer.

Everyone was wearing a seat belt and was transported to Bothwell Regional Health Center except for Nash, who refused transport.

Information is taken from preliminary Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, which do not necessarily contain statements from all parties involved.
