Miller, MO (June 13, 2022) – At around 7 a.m., on June 10, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident in Miller that left three people seriously injured.
Reports provided by MSHP show that a 2003 Ford Taurus and a 2011 Ford Fusion collided on Missouri State Route 52, just 601 feet from Norman Road. Both vehicles were totaled as a result of the accident and had to be towed from the scene.
Three people involved in the accident suffered from serious injuries. Emergency medical services transported 54-year-old Sonny Parkhurst to Lake Regional Hospital for emergency medical treatment. Two other victims, 63-year-old Linda Wieberg and 67-year-old Walter Wieberg, were both transported by EMS to Lake Regional Hospital. The two victims were then airlifted to University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri, for further treatment.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Our thoughts are with Sonny Parkhurst, Linda Wieberg, and Walter Wieberg at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
