A Southeast Missouri State University student was injured Wednesday morning when his dirt bike collided with a Honda Accord. According to Cpl. Adam Glueck of the Cape Girardeau Police Department, the accident occurred shortly before 6:30 a.m. A dirt bike driven by Alex Dickherber, 21, of Wentzville, Mo., was traveling south past Cottonwood Residential Treatment Center at 1025 N. Sprigg St. in Cape Girardeau. As he was passing by the center, a Honda Accord driven by Jason Chavez, 25, of Cape Girardeau was backing out of the center's parking lot. The Accord then hit the dirt bike. Chavez told police he did not see the dirt bike because it allegedly did not have headlights on at the time of the accident. No citations were issued, though Dickherber was treated for non-life-threatening leg injuries at a Cape Girardeau hospital.
