Laquey woman wrecks car in Saturday evening DWI crash, troopers report

Retha King wrecked her car Saturday evening on Highway NN east of Laquey in what state troopers say was a drunk driving crash.
LAQUEY, Mo. (July 13, 2009) — A Laquey woman faces charges of driving while intoxicated as a persistent offender following a Saturday evening rollover wreck that totaled her car, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Retha R. King, 48, was southbound on Highway NN about a half-mile east of Highway 17 near the corner of Seal Road driving a green and yellow striped 1996 Kia Sephia when, according to state patrol reports, she ran off the left side of the roadway at 7:25 p.m., went into the ditch and overturned. The car landed on its passenger side and King, who had been wearing her seat belt, suffered moderate injuries.

Troopers arrested King at 7:58 p.m. and released her to Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel, but King refused treatment.

Waynesville firefighters and Pulaski County sheriff’s deputies also responded to the crash scene.

Jack’s Towing removed the car, which sustained extensive damage.
