Bloomfield, MO (November 14, 2021) – A crash reported in Stoddard County took one man’s life on Friday evening, November 12. At around 4:45 p.m., authorities were notified that a crash took place on Highway 25.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2019 Ford F-750 was traveling in the area of Highway 25 and Griffin Road when it collided with a 2002 Ford Focus.

The driver of the Ford Focus, 61-year-old Alice Wimberly, was transported to Saint Francis Medical Center for care. A 13-year-old female passenger in the Focus was transported to St. Louis Children’s Hospital for care.

A second passenger in the Focus, 44-year-old Roy Bell, sustained severe injuries. He was rushed to Southeast Health of Stoddard County where he later passed away from his injuries.

Our thoughts are with Alice Wimberly and the teen injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of Roy Bell. Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Fatal Car Accidents in Missouri

Each year, thousands of victims lose their lives in motor vehicle accidents across the United States. Although there are several things we can do to protect others sharing the roads with us, there is no guarantee that others are going to be mindful of us. As a result, we continue to see numerous people suffer unnecessarily due to the reckless and negligent actions of others. In Missouri, some of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Drivers who are distracted while operating their vehicles
  • Drivers who are speeding
  • Not seeing motorcyclists in blind spots
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
