By Officer Adam Cravens, PIO
Columbia Police Department

The Columbia Police Department responded to a two vehicle collision on Friday, September 23, at the intersection of Burksville Street and Veterans Memorial Bypass.

After speaking with witnesses on scene, the accident appears to have happened when Mark Burton, 52, of Summer Shade, who was operating a black Chevy Silverado and pulling a camper trailer was making a left turn onto the bypass westbound, while under a caution arrow. Simon Coblentz, 18, of Columbia was driving southbound on Burksville Street in a black Dodge Charger and impact was made before Burton had completed the turn.

Adair EMS as well as The Columbia Fire Department also responded to the scene. Coblentz waived treatment by EMS but was later taken to TJ Samson by private vehicle.

Officer Joey Keith was the investigating Officer. He was assisted by Assistant Chief Charles Greer and Chief Jr Murphy.
