Doolittle, MO (November 14, 2021) – Authorities were called to the site of a motor vehicle accident in Phelps County that left one man injured, according to local law enforcement. At around 10:50 a.m., on November 13, emergency crews were called to the site of a crash on Highway T.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol indicate that a 2011 GMC Yukon traveled off the right side of the road near the intersection of Highway T and Eisenhower Street. As the vehicle re-entered the roadway, it collided with a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix.
The driver of the Pontiac, 55-year-old Todd Nelson, sustained injuries in the accident. He was transported to Phelps Health for care.
At this time, MSHP is investigating to determine the cause of the crash.
Our thoughts are with Todd Nelson at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
