One killed, one seriously injured in separate Sunday wrecks south of FLW
EVENING SHADE, Mo. (May 24, 2010) — Two separate Sunday crashes on Highway 17 southwest of Fort Leonard Wood killed a Plato man and seriously injured a Roby resident, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers reported that Claude G. Von Plueren, 63,of Plato, had been driving a 2010 Honda ATV northbound on Highway 17 two miles north of Evening Shade when he slowed to make a left turn at 6:35 p.m. and a northbound 2004 Honda ATV driven by Donald Pate, 71, also of Plato, ran into the rear of Von Plueren’s ATV.

Pate’s ATV overturned, ejecting him from the vehicle. He was transported to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital and later transported to Cox South Hospital in Springfield where he was pronounced dead at 6:36 a.m. Monday.

Von Plueren was not hurt.

Both ATVs sustained minor damage; Von Plueren removed his own ATV and Pate’s ATV was removed by private vehicle.

Sommers, 27, of Roby, had been southbound on Highway 17 about seven miles north of Evening Shade when his 2007 Yamaha 1100 struck a small deer, ran off the right side of the roadway, overturned, and ejected Sommers, who had not been wearing a helmet and suffered serious injuries.

Summers was tested as required by law; his vehicle sustained extensive damage and was removed by Arrington Automotive of Plato.
