Bourbon man injured on Hwy. P, near Cuba

A Bourbon man suffered serious bodily injuries when he struck a parked vehicle, as his van crested a hill near Cuba on Feb. 13.

John L. Messex, 37, was flown by helicopter to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis for his injuries last week, when his 1997 Plymouth Grand Voyager struck the rear of a 2006 Ford F350 truck on Highway P, seven miles north of Cuba. The accident took place as Messex came over a hill and ran into the back of the truck, which was unoccupied at the time. 

The crash happened just after 10 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 13.
