Senath, MO (January 7, 2022) – One man was left with moderate injuries following a truck accident in Dunklin County on Thursday morning, January 6. At around 11:44 a.m., authorities were called to the site of a crash on US Highway 412.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a collision between a 2017 Freightliner and a 2007 Sterling blocked the highway for an extended period.
The driver of the Sterling, 69-year-old Charles Tune, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. He was transported by ambulance to Arkansas Methodist in Paragould, Arkansas for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Car Accidents in Missouri
Reports provided by the Missouri Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that the state of Missouri ranks 19th out of all 50 states for the likelihood of people being involved in fatal collisions. Between 2012 and 2014, more than 2,300 people lost their lives in accidents throughout the state. Thousands more are left with life-altering injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
People who are injured in accidents often deal with an array of challenges moving forward. Not only are most victims left to deal with pain and suffering, but the financial consequences of accidents can be crippling for both victims and their families. 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. Even though many injured victims have to take some time off work to recover from their injuries, numerous victims are left permanently disabled and unable to return to work after.
