Hollister, MO (January 14, 2022) – One man was transported to Cox Medical Center in Branson for the treatment of injuries following an auto accident in Taney County on Thursday morning.
At around 8:55 a.m., on January 6, reports show that a 2021 Buick Encore was traveling north on Missouri State Highway 165. For unknown reasons, the vehicle slid off the roadway. A passing vehicle stopped in the roadway to provide assistance to the stranded motorist.
As the passenger, 39-year-old William Strailey, exited the vehicle to assist the driver, a 2021 Ford F-150 came north on the highway. The Ford then slid on the road and struck Strailey.
Strailey sustained injuries in the accident and was transported to Cox Medical Center in Branson for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with William Strailey at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
