Buffalo, MO (December 6, 2021) – Authorities in Dallas County were called to the site of a crash in the Buffalo area that sent one person to a local hospital with injuries. At around 12:20 p.m., on December 5, calls for assistance came in surrounding an auto accident on US Highway 65.

Reports from authorities indicate that a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu and a 2004 Lexus R-33 collided on US Highway 65 near Missouri State Highway 73 during the afternoon hours. The crash left both vehicles with moderate damage, requiring them to be towed from the scene.

The driver of the Lexus, 42-year-old James Elswick, sustained injuries in the crash. He was transported to Citizens Memorial Healthcare – Bolivar for care.

Our thoughts are with James Elswick at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Every year, tens of thousands of people in Missouri are left with injuries following motor vehicle accidents. There are many cases where injured victims are harmed in accidents caused by drivers who speed, are impaired, or otherwise engage in negligent actions while operating their vehicles.

These and other acts of negligence often lead to life-altering crashes that force victims out of work for several weeks. When people suffer spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even traumatic brain injuries, they often require long-term care as well. In many instances, victims are left with severe injuries that drastically limit their abilities. Dealing with painful injuries is only made worse by the financial consequences that impact both victims and their families.
