FLW rush-hour rollover backs up traffic 30 minutes
FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. (Jan. 9, 2009) — A two-vehicle rollover crash near Fort Leonard Wood’s main gate as personnel were leaving work on Wednesday caused minor injuries despite tying up traffic, according to post spokesman Mike Alley.

“It took an extended time to clear the accident because of the timing, just before rush hour, and the location south of the Shoppette,” Alley said. “Traffic was diverted for about 30 minutes, but because of the timing of the accident the backup was extensive.”

Witnesses said the crash involved two vehicles, an SUV and a pickup, with the pickup landing on its side.

Information was not immediately available on the drivers’ names, ages, and vehicle condition. A citation was issued for failure to yield, Alley said.
