New Bloomfield woman treated after mid-day crash

A New Bloomfield woman’s medical condition — which wasn’t described in detail — may have rendered her unconscious Tuesday afternoon, causing a one-car accident in western Jefferson City.

Police said Judy M. Veit, 70, New Bloomfield, said she didn’t remember anything from the 12:41 p.m. accident.

Veit was listed in fair condition Tuesday evening at University Hospital, Columbia.

Police said she was westbound in the 2700 block of West Main Street when her 2005 Buick LeSabre sedan ran off the left side of the street, hitting a curb and a temporary road construction sign in the grassy area between West Main and Industrial Drive, just east of Missouri 179.

Police said the car then continued west, crossing Missouri 179 without stopping, hitting a mailbox and ending under a parked, 53-foot trailer.

Fire department crews got her out of the car.

Police said Veit was not using a seat belt.

She was taken to Capital Region Medical Center before being transferred to the University Hospital.
