Emergency personnel responded about 9:30 a.m. Thursday to a multi-vehicle crash on southbound Route 3 at Valmeyer Road near the middle school in Columbia with one injury.

Columbia police said a Toyota 4Runner driven by Theresa Nguyen, 45, of St. Louis, collided with a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Dale Dohrman, 60, of Millstadt. A passenger in Dohrman’s truck, identified as an 82-year-old male, was transported by Columbia EMS to Memorial Hospital in Belleville.

Nguyen was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident and disobeying a traffic control device.
