Two wrecks outside county injure locals Friday morning, afternoon
EVENING SHADE/ST. LOUIS, Mo. (Nov. 13, 2009) — Two separate wrecks outside Pulaski County on Friday injured local residents, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers reported that Michael R. Stroud, 30, of Lynchburg, had been northbound on Highway 17 about a mile south of Evening Shade, which is south of Fort Leonard Wood’s south gate off Highway AW, when he ran his 2003 GMC off the left side of the roadway at 5:50 a.m. and struck a tree. Stroud, who had been wearing his seat belt, suffered minor injuries and was transported by ambulance to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital for treatment.

His vehicle sustained extensive damage and was removed by Arrington’s Towing of Plato.

Outside the local area, a St. Louis rollover wreck involving a 2007 1114 up-armored Hummer vehicle caused minor injuries to two people but only moderate damage to the Hummer, which was able to be driven from the scene after it was turned upright.

Troopers reported that Cai M. Zhao, 35, of Bennettsville, S.C., was westbound on Interstate 44 west of Antire Road in St. Louis at 12:05 p.m. when she lost control of her Hummer, ran off the right side of the roadway, returned to the roadway, struck a curb and overturned. Zhao and her passenger, Thomas W. Hinchen, 25, of St. Robert, were both taken by Eureka Ambulance personnel to St. Clare Medical Center for treatment.

Troopers reported that they were not sure whether the two injured people had been wearing their seat belts.
