A contract mail carrier rolled his jeep Wednesday south of Richland.
RICHLAND/SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (Aug. 13, 2009) — Some Richland residents may have had slower mail delivery Wednesday after a contract mail carrier rolled his vehicle on Rochester Road south of Richland.

According to Sgt. Darryl Suhr of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Mark Jack Geres, 56, of Crocker, was driving a 1976 Jeep CJ westbound about a fifth of a mile from Highway 7 when he veered into the ditch on the right-hand side of the roadway and lost control of the vehicle despite efforts to pull out of the ditch.

“He just caught the edge of the road, travelled along the roadbed and flipped,” Suhr said.

Due to the relatively low speed of the crash, Geres suffered no injuries and his vehicle sustained only minor damage after being uprighted by a wrecker from Larry’s Towing. Geres had been wearing his seat belt at the time, Suhr said.

Pulaski County Ambulance District paramedics and Tri-County firefighters from Richland responded shortly after the 10:05 a.m. wreck on the 28600 block of Rochester Road, but determined they would not be needed after verifying that Geres was not hurt.

St. Robert police also released a report Wednesday on a crash several days earlier at 12:28 a.m. Saturday.

According to a report prepared by Sgt. Butch Hohman of the city’s police department, Stanley R. Sinkler, 55, of Dixon, had been westbound on Route Z approaching the Interstate 44 overpass at Exit 163 when he lost control of his 1999 Harley Davidson motorcycle and overturned. According to Hohman, as the motorcycle overturned, it impacted with the roadway and partially ejected the driver. Sinkler was treated at the scene by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel and subsequently transported to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital with undetermined injuries for treatment.

The motorcycle sustained moderate damage and was removed from the scene by Jack’s Towing of St Robert.

In unrelated state patrol reports of arrests:

• Taylor C. Bunn, 65, of Fort Leonard Wood, was arrested at 12:06 a.m. Thursday by state troopers on charges of driving while intoxicated, driving while his license was revoked, and numerous traffic offenses. Bunn was transported to the Pulaski County Jail where he was placed on a 12-hour hold.

• Andrew C. Spera, 21, of Waynesville, was arrested at 6:03 p.m. Wednesday by state troopers on charges of speeding, failure to stop at a stop sign, and resisting arrest by fleeing. Spera was transported to the Pulaski County Jail where he was subsequently released.
