Two Wednesday crashes in Columbia


Columbia emergency services worked two Wednesday crashes on Admiral Parkway/Route 3.

At 4:27 a.m., Nicholas Meier, 37, of Waterloo, was traveling southbound in the right lane of Admiral Parkway approaching Mark Drive when he came upon a 1999 Ford F-350 driven by Matthew Wyatt, 47, of St. Louis stopped in his lane. Meier was unable to stop his 2004 Toyota Camry in time and ran into the rear of Wyatt’s truck. Wyatt was cited from driving on a suspended driver’s license.

At approximately 1:30 p.m., a 1992 Ford semi-truck with a flatbed trailer tractor trailer driven by James Hollingsworth, 50, of Cedar Hill, Mo., was traveling northbound on Admiral Parkway approaching the intersection with North Main Street when a red Pontiac headed south on Admiral Parkway turned left onto North Main in front of Hollingsworth. In his attempt to avoid a collision, Hollingsworth’s truck ran into the median, where it jackknifed. Witnesses at the scene confirmed Hollingsworth’s account. No tickets were issued.
