Charges Filed in Deadly Crash in Springfield

Court documents show that prosecutors have charged a man from Springfield in a crash that killed a pedestrian.

Prosecutors have charged David Busick with DWI involving a death and with reckless and imprudent driving after investigators say he struck and killed 43-year-old Matthew Wood last year.

The incident occurred the evening of December 10, 2021 as Busick was driving his Chevy Impala, allegedly under the influence. Police reports show the vehicle made a turn onto Chestnut Expressway from the Eldon Avenue intersection and struck Wood.

First responders transported Wood to a local hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

Police apprehended Busick at the scene of the crash, where they say he tested under the influence.
