Categorized as Auto Accidents

Springfield, MO (February 7, 2022) – A man and woman were left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident just one-half mile east of Springfield on Saturday evening, February 5.

At around 7:45 p.m., 48-year-old Michelle Vise and 63-year-old Carl Brunner were standing outside of their 2020 Hyundai Elantra while trying to change a tire on Interstate 44. As the two worked on the wheel, a 2021 GMC Sierra passing through the area struck both of them and the wheel to the vehicle. The wheel then entered into the roadway and was struck by a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.

Vise and Brunner both sustained injuries in the accident. The two victims were transported to Cox South Hospital in Springfield for emergency medical care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Michelle Vise and Carl Brunner at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
