Ste Genevieve, MO (May 25, 2022) – One man was left with serious injuries as a result of a motorcycle accident on Sunday evening in Ste Genevieve. And around 7 p.m., on May 22, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of an auto accident that occurred on Route O.
Reports from MSHP Trooper ZP Beckerman indicate that a collision between a 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle and a 2018 Jeep Wrangler occurred on Route O just north of Missouri State Route 32. The impact of the crash left both vehicles with moderate damage, requiring them to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the Harley-Davidson, 54-year-old John Shearin Jr, sustained serious injuries in the accident. He was transported to SSM Health St Louis University Hospital by Air Evac for emergency medical care.
At this time, the Missouri State Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
Our thoughts are with John Shearin Jr at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
