Head-on crash with cement truck wrecks car, leaves driver of car unhurt

The driver of this car escaped unharmed after a head-on crash with a cement truck.
SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (Oct. 2, 2009) — A head-on Friday afternoon crash between a cement truck and a passenger car didn’t hurt the car driver but sent the cement truck driver to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla for treatment of apparent rib injuries.

City police haven’t yet issued a report on the incident and the names haven’t been released, but according to St. Robert Fire Chief Chuck Fraley, the crash between a gray Ford Mustang and a Kenworth cement truck happened at 3:48 p.m. in front of the McDonald’s restaurant on Highway Z. St. Robert police and firefighters responded, as did two ambulances from the Pulaski County Ambulance District due to what was expected to be a much more serious crash, but the car driver didn’t require medical treatment after he was removed from his car which sustained massive front-end damage.

The car remained facing westbound in its own lane of traffic, blocking the roadway until 4:40 p.m. The cement truck, owned by Ozark Ready Mix, landed facing eastbound off the westbound side of the roadway in the grassy median between Highway Z and Interstate 44.

The cement truck was drivable and left under its own power. The Ford Mustang was removed by Poor Boy’s Towing.

No information on any citations or the cause of the crash is expected to be released until the St. Robert traffic sergeant returns to duty next week.
