At approximately 6 pm on Saturday, June 2, Sarah, Noah, Maggie, and Eli Steelman became involved in a traffic accident on I-44 in Phelps County. The accident began when a tractor operated by Benjamin Sfarcioc struck the Steelman’s minivan, forcing it off the road and into a nearby utility pole. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, Ms. Steelman and her three children all suffered minor injuries and had to be trasnported to the Phelps County Regional Medical Center for further observation and treatment. Mr. Sfarcioc was not injured, and he was released at the scene. All parties were wearing safety belts at the time of the incident.
