A former Sallisaw businessman is recovering from serious injuries following a two-vehicle crash on Nov. 18 in Missouri.
Robbie E. Mize, (Ramblin' Rob), 53, former owner of Ramblin Rob’s Music in Sallisaw, was expected to be sent home from Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Mo., on Wednesday. His wife, Peggy, said he suffered broken and crushed ribs, internal injuries and fractures in three places in his back in the crash.
The crash occurred at about 5:45 p.m. Nov. 18 on a Missouri highway, the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported. The report says Kevin M. Pearce, 44, of Monett, Mo., was driving a 2016 Dodge Charger north on Missouri 39 and was passing vehicles. He tried to pass Mize, who was driving a 2001 Chevrolet pickup truck, at the same time Mize was making a left turn. Pearce’s car struck Mize’s truck on the driver’s side. Witnesses said the collision caused the pickup truck to became airborne and flip twice. Mize was thrown from the truck.
The report lists no injuries for Pearce.
Peggy Mize said her husband was in x-ray on Wednesday afternoon where doctors were checking him for a possible broken shoulder. But she said it was hoped he would be discharged because the family is planning to spend the Thanksgiving holiday in a new home.
