Categorized as Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

St Francois, MO (June 16, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in the St. Francois area left one man seriously injured. At around 9:35 a.m., on June 12, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a truck accident that took place on US Highway 67.

Reports provided by authorities show that the driver of a 2013 Kenilworth fire truck failed to properly secure the fire hose on the vehicle while traveling on the southbound side of US Highway 67. As a result, the hose began to unravel near the Fairgrounds exit. As the fire truck pulled over to the side of the road, he became involved in a collision with a 2013 Suzuki GSX300RAL. The Suzuki then overturned onto its right side and traveled off the roadway.

The rider on the Suzuki, 61-year-old Thomas White, suffered severe injuries as a result of the accident. He was airlifted by arch helicopter to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis for emergency medical care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Thomas White at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
