According to the Sikeston Department of Public Safety officer who is investigating the accident, the vehicle driven by Reese was apparently headed southbound on Interstate 55 when, according to a witness, the vehicle struck the left hand barrier, went through it to become airborne and landed on all four tires on U.S. 60 below, striking the concrete barrier alongside eastbound U.S. 60. As of Friday morning, Reese was reportedly in the intensive care unit at the hospital. There were no passengers in the vehicle other than Reese. According to DPS, this is the third such accident to occur there in the past year, one of which was fatal.
