Dixon firefighters inspect a rollover wreck on Highway 28 northeast of Dixon.
DIXON, Mo. (Oct. 20, 2009) — A head-on wreck late Monday afternoon sent two drivers to hospitals, one with serious injuries that required emergency transport by helicopter ambulance.

Dixon firefighters and Dixon Ambulance District personnel received a report about 4:45 p.m. that a crash northeast of Dixon on Highway 28 near Highway MM had sent one car into the treeline and that people were trapped inside. Rescue personnel found a silver 1999 Mercedes SUV had overturned, run off the east side of the roadway, and come to rest on its wheels in the treeline.

Firefighters set up a helicopter landing zone at Dixon High School and assisted Dixon Ambulance District personnel with transporting the Mercedes driver, Janna M. Mosley, 39, of St. Robert, to the landing zone where she was subsequently flown by LifeLine air ambulance to University Hospital in Columbia for treatment of serious injuries.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Mosley had been southbound on Highway 28 about a mile and a half northeast of Dixon when she crossed the centerline of Highway 28 in a curve and struck a 1999 Ford Explorer nearly head-on that was driven by Catherine G. Thomas, 22, of Dixon. Thomas suffered minor injuries; her vehicle ran off the east side of the roadway and came to rest on the east shoulder of the roadway.

Dixon Ambulance District personnel transported Thomas to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla for treatment.

Both drivers had been wearing their seat belts, troopers reported.

Mosley’s Mercedes was totaled and removed by Rothmund’s Towing. Thomas’ Ford Explorer sustained moderate damage and was removed by Davis Towing.

Pulaski County sheriff’s deputies also assisted at the scene with traffic control.
