One person was injured in a head-on collision on U.S. 59 in Grove Friday morning, according to a report by the Grove Police Department.

Assistant Chief Dan Hinman said Shirley Herbort, 67, of Chelsea, was transported to Integris Grove General Hospital with possible head and arm injuries after a vehicle crossed the centerline and struck her car head-on around 10:22 a.m.

The accident happened when a northbound automobile driven by Sheila Bossom, 58, of Joplin, MO, drifted left of center and struck the rear corner of a southbound vehicle driven by Jimmy Whiteis, 47, of Disney, then struck the Herbort vehicle, which was also southbound, head-on, Hinman said.

According to the report, no one else was injured in the collision.
