A Fenton woman was seriously injured in a crash Monday afternoon on U.S. 67 north of Bonne Terre.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, at 1:30 p.m., Rebecca Kuelker, 56, was driving a 2002 Toyota Corolla northbound on U.S. 67 near Parkwood Drive when she traveled off the left side of the road and struck a guardrail. She then over-corrected to the right, causing the vehicle to cross both northbound lanes of the highway. The vehicle exited the right side of the road, becoming airborne and striking a rock bluff.
The victim was removed from her car and transported by the ambulance to a landing zone at Route JJ where she was then taken to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis by Air Evac.
Reports indicate she had been wearing a seat belt.
Assisting MSHP were Bonne Terre/Big River Fire Department, De Soto Rural Fire Protection District, St. Francois County Ambulance District, and the St. Francois County Sheriff’s Department.
