St. Joseph, MO (April 20, 2020) – A motor vehicle accident took place late Saturday evening that left one victim with injuries. Just after 11 p.m., on April 18, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of an auto accident in St. Joseph.

Reports from MHP indicate that 49-year-old Darcie F. Schirber was traveling south along Interstate 29 in a 2008 Ford Focus when her vehicle collided with debris from a 2005 Ford F-450, which was disabled in the median of the roadway. 

The impact of the collision caused the two Fords to collide.
