Categorized as Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

Fredericktown, MO (May 23, 2022) – An auto accident took place in Madison County that sent one man to a local hospital with injuries. At around 9:30 a.m., on May 20, emergency crews were dispatched to the site of an accident on Route O.

Reports from local authorities show that a collision between a 2016 GMC Sierra and a 2001 Ford Econoline van occurred on Route O just six miles west of Fredericktown. The incident caused some delays in the area as Missouri State Highway Patrol and firefighters worked to clear the roadway.

EMS rendered aid to 69-year-old Rickford Young at the scene before transporting him to Madison Medical Center in Fredericktown for further treatment.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Rickford Young at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Fredericktown, MO – Man Injured in Auto Accident on Route OEvery month, more than 5000 people are injured in motor vehicle accidents in the state of Missouri. These crashes are often attributed to some form of negligence. Some of the most common causes of crashes in our state include:

  • drivers who are using their cell phones to talk or text while operating their vehicles
  • drivers who run red lights or pass stop signs at intersections
