Two motorcyclists airlifted after separate Sunday morning wrecks
LAQUEY/DIXON, Mo. (Aug. 3, 2009) — Two motorcyclists wrecked in separate crashes Sunday morning and had to be airlifted for emergency treatment, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Fort Leonard Wood resident Andrade H. Castillo, 25, was airlifted for emergency treatment following a 10:20 a.m. wreck in the Laquey area on Highway 17 about nine miles south of Interstate 44. Troopers reported that Castillo had been southbound on a 2006 Suzuki motorcycle when he ran off the right side of the roadway in a curve, struck a ditch, and overturned several times, totaling his motorcycle.

Castillo, who had been wearing his helmet, was airlifted by St. John’s LifeLine helicopter ambulance to St. John’s Hospital in Springfield where he was treated for serious injuries. His motorcycle was removed by Jack’s Towing.

About two hours earlier, Michael J. Malloch, 45, of Rolla, was northbound on Highway 28 about two miles north of Dixon when he ran his 1996 Harley Davidson off the right side of the roadway at 8:25 a.m., struck a highway sign and two mailboxes, and came to rest in the ditch, suffering moderate injuries and moderately damaging his motorcycle.

St. John’s LifeLine air ambulance transported him to St. John’s Hospital; friends removed the motorcycle. Malloch had been wearing his helmet, troopers reported.

State troopers also made three unrelated arrests in the area late Saturday and early Sunday:

• Toby W. Mathes, 31, of Plato, was arrested at 9:58 p.m. Saturday on charges of driving while intoxicated, driving while his license was revoked, failure to register his motor vehicle, failure to have insurance, failure to use his seat belt, and improper vehicle lighting. Troopers transported him to the Texas County Jail where he was held without bond.

• Nicholas T. Cutter, 23, of Fort Leonard Wood, was arrested at 2:51 a.m. Sunday on charges of driving while intoxicated and failure to drive on the right half of the roadway. Troopers transported him to the Phelps County Jail where he was subsequently released.

• James H. Jordan, 26, of Dixon, was arrested at 9:20 a.m. Sunday on charges of driving while intoxicated and failure to drive on the right half of the roadway. Troopers transported him to the Pulaski County Jail where he was subsequently released.
