Columbia man involved in 3 car accidents within 10 minutes

A Columbia man was seriously injured in multiple crashes on U.S. 63 at about 4:30 in the morning on Jan. 12. While preliminary reports of the car accident raise as many questions as answers, a few concrete details were provided. The 31-year-old man was driving northbound in the southbound lane when his vehicle collided with a Missouri Department of Transportation snowplow, driven by a 52-year-old man. The plow was in the process of removing about an inch of snow from the roadway.
