Two-vehicle accident in Columbia

Columbia fire, police and EMS were called to the scene of a two-vehicle accident at about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday at Route 3 (Admiral Parkway) at Bottom Avenue.

Police said a silver 2003 GMC Envoy driven by Lisa Phillips, 53, of Dupo, was stopped at the red light on Admiral Parkway northbound at Bottom Avenue when a silver 2014 Chyrsler 200 driven by Hailey Rahn, 22, of Waterloo rear-ended the GMC. Phillips was transported to St. Anthony’s Medical Center for minor injuries.  The GMC also had a 34-year-old female and 11-year-old female as passengers, neither of which required medical transport.
