Even as Palmyra Police Department were awaiting delivery of the last of three new patrol vehicles, one of the department’s older cars became a casualty due to a three-car crash last Monday.
Palmyra Police Corporal Patrick Anderson escaped injury in the crash which injured three people and occurred in the southbound lanes of U.S. 61 at Ross Street in Palmyra at 8:25 p.m. Monday.
According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, a 2019 Ford Fiesta, driven by Gabriel J. Retamar, 31, of St. Charles, Mo., hit a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado driven by Ronald W. Smith, 59, of Hannibal.
The impact caused Retamar’s vehicle to overturn and hit the 2017 Ford Explorer police patrol car driven by Anderson.
Retamar, along with two passengers in the other vehicle, Shawana K. Shannon, 31, and Jessica L. Smith, 36, both of Hannibal, were hospitalized for minor injuries.
Police Chief Eddie Bogue said his department is awaiting word on whether the patrol car will be repaired or will have to be replaced.
