Two separate wrecks send three people to area hospitals on Thursday
WAYNESVILLE/SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (July 24, 2009) — Two separate crashes on Thursday sent three people to area hospitals with injuries.

According o Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, James J. McDaniel, 23, of Dixon, was southbound on Hartford Road about four miles east of St. Robert driving a 1998 Chevrolet when he ran off the left side of the roadway at 10:35 a.m. and struck a tree.

McDaniel, who troopers reported had not been wearing his seat belt and did not have insurance, suffered moderate injuries and was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla for treatment.

His vehicle was totaled and removed by Jack’s Towing.

McDaniel faces charges of driving while intoxicated as well as pending traffic charges, troopers reported; he was released to medical personnel rather than taken to the Pulaski County Jail.

Later in the day, troopers responded to what was originally reported as a non-injury crash on a low-water bridge on Richland Road about two miles west of Waynesville and later determined it was a two-vehicle crash involving two minor injuries.

According to state patrol reports, Mary L. Patton, 78, of Waynesville, had been southbound in a 1993 Oldsmobile when she made a wide right turn into the path of a 1998 Chevrolet pickup driven by Luke A. White, 24, also of Waynesville, and struck the pickup head-on.

Patton had been wearing her seat belt; White was not. Both were transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to St. John’s Hospital in Lebanon for treatment.

Jack’s Towing removed both vehicles. White’s pickup was totaled while Patton’s Oldsmobile sustained extensive damage.

State troopers also reported the arrest of Misty B. Brooks, 48, of Waynesville, at 10:16 p.m. Wednesday on charges of driving while intoxicated, driving while her license was suspended and failure to drive on the right half of the roadway. Brooks was transported to the Pulaski County Jail where she was subsequently released.
