Neelyville, MO (March 29, 2022) – Several people were left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Butler County on Monday morning, March 28.

At around 8:45 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Highway 142.

Reports provided by authorities show that a 2013 Toyota Camry was traveling westbound on US Highway 67 when it became involved in a crash with a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado near Highway 142.

Three people involved in the accident were injured. EMS transported 65-year-old Carlis Emmons and 66-year-old Nancy Emmons, both of Holcomb, Missouri, to Poplar Bluff Regional Hospital with serious injuries. The driver of the Chevrolet, 66-year-old Rex Wilburn of Neelyville, Missouri, was transported to the same hospital with moderate injuries.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Carlis Emmons, Nancy Emmons, and Rex Wilburn at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
