JACKSON COUNTY, Mo. — Three vehicles were involved in a crash that sent a Carrollton resident to a Kansas City-area hospital Wednesday morning.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said the accident occurred on westbound Interstate 70 at the 22.4 mile marker at 8:40 a.m. in Jackson County.

A car driven by Betty A. Nicolaisen, 49, of Sedalia, and a second vehicle operated by Oak Grove resident, 63-year-old Pauletta R. France-Issets were reportedly slowing in the roadway when a third vehicle struck France-Isetts’ car in its rear, resulting in that automobile colliding with Nicolaisen’s car.

The driver of the third vehicle, 60-year-old Carrollton resident Jill D. Fergason, sustained minor injuries in the accident.
