Houston’s fire chief escaped injured Friday night in a crash in Audrain County, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.
Tpr. G.T. Perberton said an eastbound 2016 Honda CRV driven by Lisa M. Birch, 25, of Sturgeon, slid on ice, crossed into oncoming traffic on Highway 22 and rotated, causing the rear of the vehicle to strike the front of a 2011 Chevrolet Impala operated by Joey D. Moore, 45, of Houston.
Birch was taken to Boone Hospital Center in Columbia with minor injuries. Both were wearing seat belts, Pemberton said.
