Charleston, MO (July 21, 2022) – Authorities were dispatched to the scene of an injury accident that occurred in Mississippi County on Thursday evening. Just after 9 p.m., on July 28, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a collision occurred on Vine Street.
Investigations into the crash show that a 2015 Ford Taurus crashed into the left rear side of a 2010 Pontiac G6 on Vine Street at the intersection of South Finney St. The incident caused some delays at the intersection as crews worked to remove the two damaged vehicles.
One person suffered injuries as a result of this accident. The victim, 35-year-old Brent Douglas of East Prairie, Missouri, was transported to Missouri Delta Hospital in Sikeston, Missouri, for care.
The crash remains under investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with Brent Douglas at this time as we hope for his full recovery.
