Vichy accident ends in fatality

Posted

A Columbia man was killed in a one-vehicle accident on Friday evening on Highway 63 in Vichy.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported Travis L. Swearengin, 32, Columbia, lost his life in the accident and was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:35 p.m. by Maries County Coroner David Martin.

The accident occurred at 5:35 p.m. on Highway 63 inside the Vichy city limits when a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado, driven by Swearengin, was traveling northbound when it traveled off the right side of the road, struck two buildings and overturned. The vehicle then came to rest on its top in a driveway. Swearengin was not wearing a safety device, the patrol reported. His body was transported by the coroner to Birmingham-Martin Funeral Home, Vienna.

The vehicle received extensive damage and was towed by DLH Auto.

The patrol was assisted at the accident scene by the Maries County Sheriff’s Department and the Vichy Volunteer Fire Department.

This is the first fatal accident to occur in Maries County this year and Troop I’s third fatality for 2021.
