Bourbon, MO (June 7, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Crawford County left one man injured. At around 810 p.m., on June 4, the Missouri State Highway Patrol, firefighters, and emergency medical services were all dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Interstate 44.
Reports provided by authorities show that a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling on Interstate 44 when it lost two kayaks near mile marker 215.4. As a result, a 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle traveling through the roadway became involved in a collision with one of the kayaks. The impact of the crash caused the motorcycle to overturn.
The motorcyclist, 33-year-old Jay Howard, sustained injuries as a result of the accident. He was transported by North Crawford Ambulance to Missouri Baptist Hospital in Sullivan for further care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Jay Howard at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
