Gerald woman seriously injured in accident

Stacy L. Midyett, 43, of Gerald suffered serious injuries in an accident in Osage County Friday, June 22. 

Midyett was traveling westbound on U.S. Highway 50 at 6:40 a.m. 

Thomas J. Peters, 43, of Loose Creek was stopped in the median crossover of County Road 602 in a 2013 Honda Pilot.

Peters headed northbound and failed to yield to Midyett striking the driver side door of her 2012 Cadillac SRV. This caused Midyett to travel off the right side of the roadway before striking two highway signs and then a rock bluff.

Midyett was taken by ambulance to University Hospital with serious injuries. Both drivers were using seat belts.

The Cadillac was totalled, the Honda had moderate damage. Both vehicles were towed from the scene. 

Details of the crash were taken from a report filed by Cpl. C. R. Mistler with Troop F of the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
