Mansfield, MO (October 17, 2021) – One man was left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident on Thursday morning in Wright County. At around 8:45 a.m., on October 14, emergency crews were called to the site of a collision on US Highway 60.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a collision between a 2006 Ford Windstar and a 2017 Ford F-350 took place on US Highway 60 just four miles west of Mansfield, Missouri during the morning hours.
The incident resulted in the Windstar exiting the right side of the roadway. The vehicle re-entered the highway and struck the side of the F-350’s trailer. The Windstar then ran off the right side of the roadway a second time and crashed into several trees.
The driver of the Windstar, 74-year-old Andrew Fleetwood, sustained injuries in the accident. He was transported to Ozarks Community Health Clinic in Mansfield, Missouri for treatment.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Andrew Fleetwood at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
