Two auto accidents involving Excelsior Springs residents were reported by the MSHP this past week, including a crash that occurred on Tuesday morning, July 18. At 9:50 a.m. the highway patrol responded to I-635 in Platte County when an accident was reported. Dale D. Marriot, 73, of Excelsior Springs and his passenger, James A. Giglione, 57, of Overland Park were involved and both were reported to have received minor injuries.

The crash occurred as Benjamin A. Harder of Olathe, the driver of a 2017 Acura, slowed to stop for a ladder in the roadway. Marriott’s vehicle, a 2010 Dodge Caravan, struck the rear of the Acura. All parties involved refused medical treatment at the scene.

At 3:57 p.m. on July 18 in Ray County, MSHP responded to the area of southbound MO-13, just south of J Highway. A motorcycle driven by Robert E. Scarborough, 59, was traveling southbound on MO-13 when the rear tire experienced a rapid loss of air pressure, causing the driver to lose control. The passenger of the Harley Davidson, Kaitlyn R. Scarborough, 14, received moderate injuries. MSHP reported the loss of air pressure caused the driver to lose control and the motorcycle traveled off the right side of the roadway and overturned. The motorcycle then struck a concrete barrier and came to a rest at the side of the road.

Both Scarborough parties were transported to nearby hospitals and treated for their injuries. The crash was assisted by Ray County deputies.
