CROCKER, Mo. (July 10, 2009) — A head-on crash between Crocker and the Gasconade River Bridge near the Coachlight trailer court totaled two vehicles Friday afternoon and snarled traffic for nearly an hour.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Helen M. Cushman, 21, of Crocker, was northbound on Highway 17 about 12:15 p.m. when her 2005 Honda Accord crossed the centerline and struck a southbound 1997 Ford F-150 driven by Paul E. Nedzweckas, 46, of St. Robert.

Both drivers had been wearing their seat belts. Nedzweckas was not hurt, but Cushman suffered minor injuries. Although Cushman declined transport by Pulaski County Ambulance District paramedics, she later went by private vehicle to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital for treatment.

The state patrol report indicates that Cushman is on active duty stationed at Fort Leonard Wood. Her rank and unit weren’t immediately available.

Cpl. Christine Bogart of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Cushman was cited for careless and imprudent driving.

State troopers were also assisted at the scene by Crocker firefighters, Crocker police, and Pulaski County sheriff’s deputies. Both vehicles were removed by Gene’s Towing of Crocker.

In an unrelated incident, state troopers reported that they arrested Jason P. Inman, 33, of Richland, at 10:25 p.m. Thursday on charges of speeding and driving while intoxicated, first offense. Inman was released without being transported to jail, troopers said.
