Plato teens hurt in Tuesday afternoon crash south of Fort Leonard Wood
PLATO, Mo. (June 24, 2009) — A wreck south of Fort Leonard Wood on Tuesday afternoon hurt two teenagers, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers reported that Matthew A. Curtis, 17, of Plato, was northbound on Highway 17 about three miles north of Roby at 3:30 p.m. in a 1998 Oldsmobile when he swerved to miss an oncoming vehicle that was in his lane of travel, ran off the right side of the roadway and struck a telephone box.

Curtis was not hurt but two passengers, Brad Childress, 16, of Roby, and Kory Cobb, 17, of Plato, both suffered minor injuries and were transported by private vehicle to Texas County Memorial Hospital in Houston. All three had been wearing their seat belts.

The vehicle was moderately damaged but was able to be driven from the crash site.

In an unrelated incident, state troopers earlier reported that they arrested Christopher Black, 23, of Salem, at 12:24 a.m. Saturday in Pulaski County on charges of failure to stop at a stop sign and driving while intoxicated as a prior offender. Troopers released Black, according to state patrol reports.
