ST. ROBERT, Mo. (Feb. 20, 2009) — A St. Louis woman wrecked her car and suffered moderate injuries Friday afternoon in the median between Interstate 44 and St. Robert Outer Road in front of Wal-Mart, in a crash originally reported as a non-injury wreck.
State troopers reported that Sandra M. Frank, 47, was westbound on Interstate 44 at 12:35 p.m. driving a 2007 Chevrolet when she lost control, ran off the right side of the roadway and struck a sign. Frank, who had been wearing her seat belt, was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to Phelps County Regional Medical Center for treatment.
Her vehicle was moderately damaged and removed by Jack’s Towing.
