A Houston man was flown to a Springfield hospital after a West Highway 17 accident Wednesday afternoon.

A Houston man was seriously injured Wednesday afternoon in a crash just west of his hometown on Highway 17.

Troopers said Billy R. Sikes, 56, was driving a 1997 GMC pickup that ran off the roadway, striking a fence and trees.

Sikes was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital and airlifted to a Springfield hospital.

It’s the second accident in that neighborhood this week.
