JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMIZ)
An out-of-control car caused a chain reaction that ended with a road sign hitting another car in Jefferson City on Wednesday morning, police say.
The crash happened at about 7:45 a.m. on Highway 179 just north of Edgewood Drive. Jacob Hoke, 16, of Jefferson City, lost control of his Toyota Camry while driving northbound, gong off the road and hitting a sign and concrete guardrail before the car rolled onto its top, Jefferson City police say.
The road sign then skidded on the road and hit a southbound Kia driven by Corey Carrender, 32, of Jefferson City, police said. Hoke was taken to a hospital for moderate injuries and his vehicle was towed from the scene, according to the police department.
Traffic was diverted for about 45 minutes for cleanup and investigation.
