Weekend wrecks injure two drivers

Jack's Towing personnel remove a car from Highway T north of Waynesville.
WAYNESVILLE/BRUMLEY, Mo. (Sept. 28, 2009) — Two one-vehicle weekend wrecks injured two drivers from Waynesville and Saint Robert, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

A Saturday morning crash on Highway T four miles north of Waynesville snarled traffic nearly an hour while emergency personnel removed a red 1999 Chevrolet Prizm from the roadway.

Troopers reported that Carol I. Brown, 31, of Waynesville, had been southbound on Highway T about 11:50 a.m. when she hydroplaned on wet pavement, lost control of her car, ran off the right side of the road and struck a tree. Brown, who had been wearing her seat belt, suffered moderate injuries and was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to St. John’s Hospital in Lebanon. Her car was extensively damaged and removed by Jack’s Towing.

Pulaski County sheriff’s deputies and Waynesville firefighters assisted with traffic control until 12:33 p.m. when the roadway was opened for traffic.

A much more serious Sunday afternoon wreck resulted in a St. Robert man being airlifted for treatment.

Troopers reported that Luis A. Matos, 28, had been northbound on Highway U in Miller County about 3.5 miles south of Highway 42 riding a 2004 Honda motorcycle. That’s near Brumley, just beyond the Pulaski-Miller county line.

As he was riding northbound at 3:05 p.m., Matos lost control on a curve, skidded off the left side of the road and overturned, suffering serious injuries. Matos, who had been wearing his helmet, was flown to Lake Regional Hospital in Lake Ozark; his motorcycle was moderately damaged and removed by the owner.

Troopers reported that Matos had no proof of insurance.
