In a three-vehicle collision on Thanksgiving night, four Greene County residents died, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

A Ram 1500 struck a Chevrolet Traverse in the rear, while both were headed eastbound, and traveled into the westbound lane where it hit a Ford Escape head on.

Both drivers and two occupants of the Ram and a Ford died. A one-year-old girl, of Republic, sustained moderate injuries, and the driver of a Chevrolet was able to drive his moderately damaged vehicle away from the scene injury-free.

Danielle Dillman, 36, of Springfield, and Patrick Holloway, 44, of Republic, were pronounced dead at the scene at 9:50 p.m. 

Shandrea Holloway, 44, of Republic, Joshua Wamsley, 33, of Springfield, were both transported to Cox South by EMS and both died at 10:39 p.m. and 10:32 p.m., respectively.

Patrick Holloway was the driver of the Ford, with Shandrea and the one-year-old girl as occupants. Wamsley was the driver of the Ram, with Dillman as the only occupant.

The child involved in the crash was transported to Cox South by EMS, where she, according to the release, is alive.
