Two separate Monday night wrecks send motorists to area hospitals
SAINT ROBERT/ROBY, Mo. (Aug. 7, 2009) — Two separate single-vehicle crashes Monday night in the Fort Leonard Wood area, one north and one south of the post, wrecked vehicles and caused injuries, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers reported that Joseph L. Bell, 23, of Saint Robert, was northbound on Highland Springs Road about two miles north of St. Robert when he lost control of his 2004 Suzuki 100GSX motorcycle at 8:50 p.m. while braking, skidded off the left side of the roadway, and was thrown off the motorcycle.

Bell, who had been wearing his helmet, suffered moderate injuries and was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla. His motorcycle was moderately damaged and was removed by its owner.

About the same time south of the post, Michael A. Willard, 27, of Bloomfield, was northbound on Highway 17 about three miles north of Roby at 8:50 p.m. when he hit a deer with his 2003 Dodge Caravan, causing extensive damage to his van.

Michael Willard was not hurt but his passenger, Malinda S. Willard, suffered minor injuries and was transported by ambulance to Texas County Regional Hospital in Houston. Both had been wearing their seat belts.

Their van was removed by A-1 Towing of Houston.
