Sgt. Darryl Suhr of the Missouri State Highway Patrol investigates a Highway 28 rollover wreck south of Dixon on Tuesday.
DIXON, Mo. (Dec. 23, 2008) — As temperatures hovered around the freezing mark Tuesday, state troopers cautioned that roads which appear safe may have slick spots.

Travel became especially hazardous on Highway 28 south of Dixon, where troopers reported multiple crashes and one rollover wreck around noontime, and on Old Route 66 at the western end of St. Robert where police reported that vehicles slid off the road near the bridge over Interstate 44.

None of the wrecks caused injuries, but worst of the wrecks extensively damaged a 2006 Ford F-150 pickup south of Dixon.

According to Sgt. Darryl Suhr of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, James J. Kleffner, 70, of Brinktown, was southbound on Highway 28 in his white pickup about 11:30 a.m. when he lost control of his vehicle while approaching the Highway D junction. The vehicle rolled over and landed on its passenger side, partly blocking access to Highway D.

“He was heading toward St. Robert and apparently lost control on a slick spot on the roadway,” Suhr said.

Dixon firefighters and Dixon Ambulance District paramedics responded but Kleffner declined medical treatment at the scene. His vehicle was removed by Plaza Service of Vienna.
