Poplar Bluff, MO (December 17, 2021) – One man was transported to a local hospital with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in Butler County. At around 2:20 p.m., on December 15, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Oak Grove Road.
Reports from local authorities indicate that a collision between a 2019 Ford F-450 and a 2018 Nissan Altima occurred on Oak Grove Road just one-half mile west of Poplar Bluff.
The crash caused moderate delays in traffic throughout the area as crews worked to clear the scene.
