Kahoka Woman Killed In Head-On Crash With Semi

A Clark County woman was killed in a head-on collision with a semi tractor trailer on Highway 136 seven miles east of Memphis at the section of the road often referred to as "Blind Man's Corner". The crash occurred at 10:40 a.m. December 11.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Betty L. Harris, 80, of Kahoka was westbound in a 1993 Buick when the vehicle crossed the center line. The car narrowly missed a pick-up truck in the east bound lane before slamming head-on into a 1993 Freightliner that was eastbound. The semi was driven by Everett G. Bales, 44, of Blue Springs.

The impact of the collision forced the vehicles off the north side of the road where they traveled nearly 100 feet down an embankment before coming to rest.

Harris was pronounced dead at the scene by Scotland County Coroner Ginny Monroe. The body was transported to Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka. Bales was uninjured in the crash.

The car was totally destroyed in the collision and the tractor trailer sustained extensive damage. Both were removed from the scene by Brewer's Tow Service of Kahoka.

The Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Scotland County Sheriff's Department, the Scotland County Fire and Rescue Squad and the Scotland County Ambulance Service.
