DIXON/RICHLAND, Mo. (Dec. 9, 2009) — Three Wednesday morning crashes, all north of Pulaski County, injured two Richland residents and one Dixon resident within an hour of each other.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Merrel M. Breyer, 46, of Richland, had been northbound on Highway 17 in Miller County at Route A when he ran his 2004 Chevrolet off the right side of the roadway in a curve at 6 a.m., struck an embankment and overturned, totaling his vehicle.

At 6:40 a.m., Marlene Blackburn, 47, of Dixon, was northbound on Highway 133 about ten miles north of Dixon in Maries County when she lost control of her 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier, crossed the centerline, ran off the left side of the roadway and struck a ditch.
