13 injured in Scott County wreck
Three adults and 10 children were treated for mostly minor injuries at a Cape Girardeau hospital Sunday afternoon, police say, after a commercial-sized van turned into the path of a compact car on Highway 77 in Scott County.
One adult and 10 children, ages 9 to 16, were among the passengers in the 2002 Ford Econoline van and suffered only minor injuries in the traffic accident, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol. All who were injured in the van, including one adult -- Delores L. Bolen, 29 -- were wearing seat belts. The van's driver, Rachel L. Irvine, 23, was not injured. All of those in the van are from Cape Girardeau.
The two in the 1998 Honda Civic each had moderate injuries, including the driver, Benjamin Riley, 21, of Sikeston, Mo., the patrol said. Only the Civic's passenger, Torrie E. Price, 21, of Benton, Mo., was not wearing a seat belt.
According to the patrol's crash report, the van was traveling east on Highway 77 at Interstate 55 and was making a left turn, which put it in the path of the car at about 1:10 p.m.
The van was listed only as a church van in preliminary reports filed by the patrol and the Scott County Sheriff's Department, which assisted at the scene.
