CROCKER, Mo. (March 4, 2010) — An elderly Waynesville couple wrecked their car in a Thursday morning one-vehicle crash about two miles south of the Crocker city limits.

The crash was originally reported as a multi-patient wreck with extrication required, but when Crocker firefighters arrived at the crash scene on Highway 17 just north of Rambo Road, they found that both people in the car, Jean F. D’Entremont, 74, and Reginald J. D’Entremont, 78, had suffered only minor injuries but did require assistance in being removed from their white 1998 Buick, which had landed in a ditch at an angle that prevented the passenger doors from being opened and left the driver’s side high enough in the air that the occupants could not get out.

Crocker Fire Chief Mark Fancher confirmed that the Jaws of Life were available but not needed for extrication.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Jean D’Entremont had been northbound when she blacked out about 10 a.m., ran off the right side of the roadway, struck a culvert and came to rest in the ditch.

Both of the D’Entremonts had been wearing their seat belts and were transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla. Their vehicle sustained moderate damage and was removed by Jack’s Towing.

In unrelated incidents reported by state troopers:

• Albert D. Nicholson, 23, of Fort Leonard Wood, was arrested at 2:20 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2, by state troopers in Laclede County on a misdemeanor warrant from Crawford County for a non-moving traffic violation. Nicholson was transported to the Laclede County Jail where he was eligible for bond.

• Michael T. Esparza, 22, of Devil’s Elbow, was arrested at 6:20 p.m. on Tuesday, March 2, by state troopers in Pulaski County on felony charges of resisting arrest by fleeing and turned over to the St. Robert Police Department, where he was placed on a 24-hour hold.
