Laquey man totals pickup Saturday

Firefighters work to extricate a driver from his pickup early Saturday morning.
LAQUEY, Mo. (Nov. 16, 2009) — An early Saturday morning wreck on Highway 17 between Highway NN and Highway AB in the Laquey area totaled a pickup truck and required firefighters from two departments to extricate the elderly driver.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Allen L. Link, 84, of Laquey, had been southbound on Highway 17 about two and a half miles south of Interstate 44 when he ran off the right side of the roadway at 4:55 a.m. while negotiating a curve, ran up an embankment and struck a tree.

Link’s white 2004 Dodge Dakota 4x4 pickup had run through a ditch, causing extensive front-end damage. Troopers reported it was totaled and removed by Jack’s Towing.

Link, who had not been wearing his seat belt, suffered moderate injuries and was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District paramedics to St. John’s Hospital in Lebanon.

Both Hazelgreen and Waynesville firefighters assisted at the crash scene.

• In an unrelated weekend incident, state troopers in Pulaski County arrested James G. Dougherty, 37, of St. Robert, at 1:55 a.m. Sunday on charges of driving while intoxicated, failure to drive on the right half of the roadway, and failure to use his seat belt. Troopers took him to the Pulaski County Jail where he was subsequently released.
