Palmyra, MO (July 14, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident took place in Marion County involving two Ford pickup trucks that left one man injured. At around 3:45 p.m., on July 12, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a motor vehicle accident took place on County Road 337.
Reports provided by MSHP show that a 2001 Ford F-150 pickup truck was traveling on County Road 337 when the vehicle crossed over the center line and struck a 2016 Ford F-150 pickup truck nearly head-on just four miles northeast of Palmyra, Missouri. Both vehicles sustained extensive damage and had to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the 2016 Ford, 49-year-old Howard Disselhorst, sustained injuries in the accident.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Our thoughts are with Howard Disselhorst at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
