COLUMBIA — Two highway patrol units, two Boone County Sheriff’s Department units, one Boone County Fire and Safety vehicle and one ambulance responded to an accident on Interstate 70, just east of exit 121 near the U.S. 40 interchange, at 1:18 p.m. Sunday, State Trooper Jon Cluver said. There were no injuries.
Melissa Lamb was heading east on I-70 in her dark blue Jeep Cherokee when a red Chevrolet Cruz, driven by David Thomas, swerved into her lane from the right lane and forced her into the median, Cluver said. Thomas swerved into the left lane to avoid hitting a vehicle merging onto the interstate from the entrance ramp, Cluver said.
Lamb, from Pennsylvania, sustained damage to the front left side of her vehicle.
“No injuries were visible, but she is complaining of shoulder and neck pains,” Cluver said. No one was taken to the hospital.
