Paris, MO (October 16, 2021) – A motor vehicle collision involving two vehicles on Friday, October 15, left one man injured. The victim has since been identified as 35-year-old Caleb Marquette of Mexico, Missouri.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that at around 12 p.m., a 2006 Dodge pickup truck, driven by Marquette, was stopped on Missouri State Highway 15, just 3 miles south of Paris while waiting to turn into a private driveway. For unknown reasons, the Dodge was struck by a 2020 Chevrolet pickup truck, driven by 39-year-old Clinton Youse.
Marquette sustained moderate injuries in the accident. He was transported to University Hospital in Columbus via Monroe County Ambulance.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Caleb Marquette at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
