Saturday St. Robert wreck injures two
SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (Dec. 5, 2009) — Two people suffered undetermined injuries following an early Saturday afternoon wreck in St. Robert.

According to a report issued Saturday night by Sgt. Butch Hohman of the St. Robert Police Department, police, firefighters, and Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel all responded to a 1 p.m. wreck at the corner of Old Route 66 and J.H. Williamson Drive. That’s the crossover road through Reed Park from westbound to the eastbound lanes of Old Route 66, and after crossing, it continues south past the St. Robert Community Center until it reaches the city’s trash transfer station.

Officer Jennifer Hicks of the St. Robert Police Department determined that Brandson M. Anderson, 16, of Waynesville, had been exiting Reed Park and entering Old Route 66 in a 2008 Dodge Ram pickup truck while a 2008 Cadillac STS driven by Joanell P. Word, 50, also of Waynesville, was eastbound on Old Route 66 approaching the same intersection.

“Anderson failed to see the approaching vehicle and continued pulling onto the roadway causing the Anderson vehicle to impact with the Word vehicle,” according to Hicks’ report.

Joanell Word and a passenger in her vehicle, Xavier Purdy, were both treated at the scene by ambulance personnel and subsequently transported to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital.

Anderson’s pickup sustained only minor damage while Word’s vehicle sustained moderate damage and was removed from the scene by Poor Boy’s Towing of St Robert.

St. Robert firefighters also assisted the ambulance crew and handled roadway cleanup.
