A truck driven by Travis Boley, 34, was turning left from northbound Ohio Street to travel west on Missouri Boulevard. Boley was waved out into traffic by another driver who was stopped on Missouri eastbound. A van driven by Tina Smith was eastbound in the inside lane of Missouri boulevard. Boley did not see Smith approaching. As Boley turned, he crossed into the path of Smith. Smith was not able to react and crashed into Boley.

Smith and a juvenile female passenger in her vehicle was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Smith, 41, was wearing a seat belt, but the juvenile in the back was not.
