Rollover wreck Saturday snarls Saint Robert traffic at Ramada intersection

St. Robert Assistant Fire Chief Doug Cage helps remove a wreck from the Ramada intersection.
SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (Oct. 10, 2009 UPDATED 10 p.m.) — A three-vehicle crash at the Ramada intersection in St. Robert snarled traffic for about half an hour while emergency crews and tow company personnel removed a rolled-over SUV and a second damaged vehicle that remained on its wheels during the crash.

St. Robert Assistant Fire Chief Doug Cage said the crash happened shortly before 2 p.m. and his firefighters assisted with traffic control, blocking the eastbound lanes and directing eastbound traffic south on Missouri Avenue.

Troopers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol also assisted at the crash scene.

According to information gathered at the scene and a report issued later Saturday by St. Robert police, the reporting officer, Dan Cordova, responded to a 1:55 p.m. crash involving a silver 2007 Toyota RAV4 SUV driven by Catina S. McReynolds, 20, of Dixon, who entered the Ramada intersection from Highway Z on a green light and continued traveling west. The driver of a blue 1994 Ford Explorer, James Shepherd, 70, also of Dixon, was traveling south on Missouri Avenue approaching the same intersection but failed to notice that his light was red, failed to stop for the traffic signal, entered the intersection, and pulled into the path of McReynolds’ vehicle causing her Toyota to hit Shepherd’s Ford. The collision resulted in Shepherd’s Ford overturning onto its right side while the McReynolds vehicle continued westbound and hit a white 1993 Dodge Spirit driven by Kevin W. Candler, 26, of Laquey, who was stopped at the traffic signal.

Jack’s Towing removed the rolled-over Ford Explorer and the Toyota SUV, which had front-end damage; St. Robert police classified the damage to both vehicles as extensive. The Dodge Spirit also sustained minor damage on the driver’s side but was able to be driven away under its own power.

None of the drivers were hurt. However, two occupants of Shepherd’s vehicle, Crystal Davis, 20, and Aiden G. Garn, 3, both of Dixon, were treated at the scene and subsequently transported to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel with undetermined injuries.
