In Jefferson County, an accident involving one man was struck again by another vehicle when the driver failed to stop ahead for the previous accident.

On October 15,2011 at approximately 9:11 p.m., Timothy Maenner, age 34 and a resident of Imperial, Missouri was operating a 2001 Buick Lesabre traveling in the westbound direction on Missouri Route MM only .02 miles east of Missouri Route 30. In the second vehicle, Thomas Lewis, age 50 and a resident of House Springs, Missouri was operating a 1997 Pontiac Grand AM and also traveling in the westbound direction. Upon this accident, Timothy was already currently in an accident and his vehicle was stopped to wait for the Missouri State Highway Patrol to investigate.

At that said time and place, Thomas Lewis was traveling westbound on Missouri Route MM. Thomas failed to stop for the accident ahead that involved Timothy, and the front of Thomas’ vehicle struck the rear of Timothy’s. Before the accident had occurred, 47 year old Derrick Voisey from Lemay, Missouri exited another vehicle to check on Timothy in reference to his previous accident. Upon the impact of both Thomas and Timothy’s crash, the door of Timothy’s vehicle closed which caused Derrick to become injured.

As the results of this crash, Timothy received serious injuries and was taken to St. Anthony’s Medical Center by the Big River Ambulance. Pedestrian, Derrick Voisey, sustained moderate injuries and was taken to St. Clare Health Center by the Big River Ambulance. The at-fault driver, Thomas Lewis, received moderate injuries as well and was also taken by the Big River ambulance to St. Anthony’s Medical Center where all occupants in this auto-crash received medical attention.

During this crash, Thomas Lewis was wearing a safety device while Timothy was not wearing one.

Both Timothy and Thomas’ vehicles received total damages from this crash and were towed by Northwest Towing.

This auto-crash was investigated by the Missouri State Highway Patrol and Trooper G. Groneymeyer #360 in Troop C.
