Two hurt in Waynesville rollover

Emergency personnel investigate a rollover just west of Waynesville Exit 156.

WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (May 31, 2012) — A Thursday morning rollover wreck injured two teens just west of the Waynesville exit off Interstate 44, complicating morning rush hour work for local emergency responders who also had to handle a non-injury wreck near eastbound mile marker 169 and a third crash on Ichord Avenue inside the Waynesville city limits in front of the Kum & Go gas station.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Teage M. Jones, 16, of Saint Robert, had been driving a 2002 Ford Explorer eastbound at 6:50 a.m. when he ran off the right side of the roadway, struck an embankment, ran up the embankment and back down again, overturned, and came to rest off the roadway.

Jones suffered minor injuries; his passenger, Kayla Jones, 15, also of St. Robert, suffered moderate injuries. Both had been wearing their seatbelts and were transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to St. John’s Hospital in Lebanon.

Their vehicle was totaled and removed by Jack’s Towing. Waynesville firefighters and Pulaski County sheriff’s deputies assisted at the crash scene.

Initial reports on the crash at the east end of Pulaski County indicate that a brown and grey Chevrolet Silverado was partially blocking the roadway. A sheriff’s deputy responded along with state troopers; the vehicle was removed by 7:08 a.m.

No information was immediately available on the Ichord Avenue crash, which was handled by Waynesville police.

In an unrelated incident:

  • State troopers arrested Carlos B. Torres, 36, of Round Lake, Ill., at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday in Pulaski County on a felony charge of possession of Aderol, possession of up to 35 grams of marijuana, unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, and speeding 21 mph over the limit. Troopers transported him to the Pulaski County Jail where he was subsequently released.
