Fruitland, MO (November 29, 2021) – Two people were transported to area hospitals following an auto accident in the Cape Girardeau area on Saturday morning, November 27. At around 11:10 a.m., calls for assistance came in surrounding a crash on Highway 177.

Reports from local authorities show that a 2003 Ford F-150 was traveling on Highway 177 when it collided with a 2007 Chevrolet Impala just one half-mile east of Fruitland.

Both drivers were injured in the accident. The victims, 26-year-old Steven Porzelt and 41-year-old Sarah Dixon, were both transported to St Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Steven Porzelt and Sarah Dixon at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Car Accidents in Missouri

Each year, tens of thousands of people in our state are negatively impacted by 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.

People involved in collisions are often forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical treatment and vehicle repairs while going without wages from work.
