Bollinger County man injured in crash


A 69-year-old man was injured following a 2-car crash late Saturday afternoon in Bollinger County.

It happened around 5:46 p.m. on Highway V just north of Sturdivant.

Troopers say a vehicle driven by Travis E. Bennett, 17, of Marble Hill was headed westbound and pulled into the path of a vehicle driven by Norman L. Shelby, 69, of Zalma.

Shelby received serious injuries and was flown to a Cape Girardeau hospital.

"Everybody around here just loves him," said Mona Keene. "He's a really super-nice guy and everybody around here knows him. He's been here for years and years and years. The people that I've talked to so far are really shocked, really concerned about him."

Keene hopes her friend recovers and wants people who travel Highway V to slow down on the rural road.
