Houston, MO (June 8, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in Texas County left one man seriously injured on Sunday evening, June 5. At around 5 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that an auto collision took place on US Highway 63 that required emergency medical care
. Reports provided by authorities show that a 2012 Ford Fusion was traveling on US Highway 63 when it crossed over the center lines for unknown reasons. As a result, the vehicle crashed into a 2019 Ford Edge just four miles north of Houston. Both vehicles overturned as a result of the accident. The two vehicles were totaled and had to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the Ford Edge, 55-year-old Steven McGuire, suffered serious injuries as a result of the accident. He was transported to Texas County Memorial Hospital for emergency medical treatment.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
