Woman hurt in head-on Crocker crash
CROCKER, Mo. (Nov. 11, 2009) — A head-on crash just south of the Pulaski-Miller county line sent an Iberia woman for emergency treatment Wednesday morning.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Ruby L. Ross, 76, of Iberia, was southbound on Highway 17 about four miles south of Crocker when she swerved her 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix in an attempt to miss a deer in the roadway at 8:10 a.m., struck the deer anyway, lost control of her vehicle, skidded across the centerline and struck a northbound 2005 Ford Focus head-on that was driven by Rachelle M. Steen, 22, of Dixon.

Neither Ross nor Steen were hurt. However, Ross’ passenger Cynthia S. Ponder, 53, of Iberia, suffered moderate injuries and was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City.

Both cars sustained moderate damage and were removed by Gene’s Towing of Crocker. Steen was wearing her seat belt but the other two women were not.

In two unrelated arrests on Nov. 9 by state troopers in Pulaski County:

• Christopher B. Wright, 25, of Richland, was arrested at 9:58 p.m. on two Pulaski County warrants for felony forgery and for speeding and a Waynesville city warrant for stealing. Wright was taken to the Pulaski County Jail where he was eligible for bond.

• Kyle Florea, 24, of Fort Leonard Wood, was arrested at 12:52 a.m. for driving while intoxicated and failure to drive on the right half of the roadway. Florea was taken to the Pulaski County Jail and subsequently released.
