Rogersville, MO (June 19, 2022) – A young child was left with moderate injuries as a result of a crash that occurred in Greene County on Friday morning, June 17. At around 8:55 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a crash on Farm Road 186.
Reports from MSHP show that a 2018 Toyota Corolla and a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado occurred on Farm Road 186 just one mile southwest of Rogersville. Both vehicles sustained significant damage in the accident and had to be towed from the scene.
An 11-year-old female in the Toyota and the driver of the Chevrolet, 54-year-old Clifford Musgraves, were both injured in the accident. EMS rendered aid to the victims on-site before transporting them to Cox South Hospital in Springfield for further care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Clifford Musgraves and the child injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
