A head-on crash involving at least 2 vehicles- including one that plunged into a lake- is reported on U.S. 169 just south of Stanton Road near the Anderson county line.
So far have been a total of 5 people injured: 3 adults- 2 serious and 1 critical- and 2 children- 1 serious and 1 critical.
The was also the report of "un unresponsive infant in a car seat" of the vehicle that went into a lake on the east side of U.S. 169.
It is also reported that "one person is unaccounted for" at that crash scene- unknown if that is the infant described above- but a fatality was reported at the crash scene.
Divers- EMS crews and law enforcement agencies throughout Miami as well as Anderson county are either on scene or enroute to this scene.
Apparently a passerby who reported the crash pulled a woman from the vehicle that went into the lake and took them to their residence in the 39800 block of U.S. 169.
That woman's condition has not been stated- but it's believed her condition is non life-threatening.
All patients were being transported to Metro Kansas City hospitals- the children to Children's Mercy.
