Mt Pleasant Township, MO (June 3, 2020) – At approximately 11:30 a.m., on June 2, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on State Route D.

Reports show that a 2015 Dodge Ram pickup truck, driven by 37-year-old Jesus A Jimenez-Fuentes, was attempting to turn into a private driveway on Highway D just past 177th Street when his vehicle collided with a 2004 Chevrolet driven by 23-year-old Jordan Bell.

The impact of the collision sent the Chevrolet off the side of the road.

Jesus Jimenez-Fuentes suffered minor injuries in the crash and was transported to St Joseph Hospital. A passenger in the vehicle, who was identified as 63-year-old Jeffery Smith, suffered serious injuries and was transported to Overland Park Regional Hospital for treatment.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with both Mr. Jesus Jimenez-Fuentes and Jeffery Smith at this time.
