Car Careens Into Responders at Icy Missouri Accident Scene, Five Injured – Three Seriously

Three Missouri firefighters suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries when they and two other responders were struck by a car that crossed a median and careened into an accident scene.

Charges were pending late Saturday against the vehicle’s driver, Timothy Perez, ConnectMidMissouri.com reported.. Crews had just wrapped up attending to a car accident on I-70 at about 4 p.m. Saturday when the collision into responders happened.

The firefighters were from Marshall, KPHO quoted the Missouri Highway Patrol as reporting.

Units were on the scene of the initial rollover crash, when police said the driver — going too fast for the conditions — crossed the median, over a cable barrier and into a guardrail before hitting one of the vehicles involved in the initial accident and then the responders.

One of the injured, a State Trooper, dove out of the way down an embankment to avoid being hit by the car.
