Another accident occurred Thursday afternoon on westbound I-44 approaching the construction zone over the Big Piney River Bridge at the 167.6 mile marker.
The highway patrol says the accident occurred at 1:10 in the afternoon when a 2004 Chevrolet Impala, driven by 77-year-old Judith A. Eckert of Belle, rear-ended a 2015 Nissan Altima that was stopped in traffic and driven by 23-year-old Kourtney T. Hay of St. Louis. After the impact, Eckert’s vehicle traveled off the interstate and struck a rock bluff. Eckart received moderate injuries as a result and was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance to Phelps Health in Rolla to receive treatment.
