Sedalia, MO (May 11, 2020) – Just before 8 a.m., on May 9, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of an auto collision on US Highway 65.

Reports show that 40-year-old Charles W. Muriuki was attempting to make a left turn onto Rebar Drive in a 2012 Freightliner Cascadia when his vehicle collided with a 2015 Dodge Ram pickup truck. The Dodge was totaled in the accident.

The driver of the Dodge, who was identified as 58-year-old Billy D. Splane, sustained serious injuries in the crash and was transported via EMS to Bothwell Hospital for treatment.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Mr. Billy D. Splane and his family at this time.
