Hanson woman hurt when car struck by van | News
A 30-year-old Hanson woman was hurt Monday morning when her car was struck by a van on the Pennyrile Parkway at US 41 in Hopkins County.
It happened at the 45 mile-marker at 11:45 a.m.
Troopers say Robert E. Abell, age 73 of Rockvale, CO, was stopped in the gore area between the northbound lanes of the parkway and the northbound exit lanes to US 41. Jeanetta Hollis, age 30 of Hanson, was operating a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu northbound in the right hand lane of the parkway.
Abell attempted to merge into the right, northbound lane and pulled into the path of Hollis’ vehicle. The front corner passenger side of Hollis’ vehicle struck the rear corner driver’s side of Abell’s van. Abell’s vehicle exited the right shoulder of the roadway and struck a road sign. It came to rest in the left exit lane of exit 45. Hollis’ car came to rest blocking both northbound lanes of the parkway.
Hollis was transported via ambulance to Baptist Health Madisonville for treatment. Abell and his wife Priscilla, 72, and Kathryn A. Loyd, also 72, of Eldon, MO, were not injured. All occupants were wearing seatbelts.
