Plato driver strikes deer, rolls pickup
FAIRVIEW, Mo. (Nov. 24, 2009) — A Sunday evening car-deer crash southwest of Fort Leonard Wood extensively damaged a pickup and sent its driver to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital with minor injuries.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Isaiah M. Gardea, 32, of Plato, had been southbound on Highway 17 driving a 1997 Ford Ranger pickup at 5:30 p.m. when he struck a deer in the roadway about ten miles south of Exit 153 and lost control of his vehicle, which then ran off the left side of the roadway and overturned onto its top.

Gardea, who had been wearing his seat belt, was transported to the post hospital by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel. His vehicle was removed by Jack’s Towing.

In an unrelated state patrol action:

• Troopers in Pulaski County arrested Matthew W. Sutton, 37, of Edgar Springs, at 11:15 a.m. Tuesday on charges of driving while intoxicated and careless and imprudent driving resulting in an accident. Sutton was transported to the Pulaski County Jail where he was subsequently released.
