Miller Co, MO (March 27, 2021) – On Friday, March 26th, one person sustained injuries during a two-vehicle collision in Miller County.
Sources showed that 62-year-old Jimmy Buchholz, a resident of Steedman, was heading westbound. In front of him on the roadway was 64-year-old John Sullivan, a resident of O’Fallon. At one point, as Sullivan slowed down in order to merge out of a lane that was closing due to a construction zone, Buchholz crashed into the rear-end of Sullivan’s Ford Explorer.
Sullivan, who was buckled up when the impact occurred, sustained moderate injuries and was taken to Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
