Icy roads wreck four cars Saturday on Highway 133 west of Dixon

Trooper C. Stallcup of the Missouri State Highway Patrol directs traffic while waiting for tow trucks to arrive and clear the wreckage of several crashes on Highway 133 near Highway N west of Dixon.
DIXON, Mo. (Feb. 21, 2009) — A Saturday morning snowfall melted shortly after dawn throughout most of Pulaski County, but left a few roads ice-covered and slippery.

Among those roads was Highway 133 near the Highway N junction five miles west of Dixon in the 17300 block, where a tree-shaded road contributed to four wrecks about 9:40 a.m. that injured one driver.

The only person injured was Gabriele E. Williams, 44, of Dixon, who state troopers reported had been northbound driving toward Dixon in a 1993 Buick Cutlass when she began to slide on the ice-covered roadway, ran off the left side of the road and struck a fence, causing moderate damage to her vehicle.

Williams, who had not been wearing her seat belt, suffered moderate injuries and was transported by Dixon Ambulance District personnel to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla for treatment. Her vehicle was removed by Jack’s Towing.

Other vehicles at the crash scene included a southbound silver GMC Jimmy SUV that landed in the northbound ditch and was towed out by a private vehicle, a northbound red Chevy car that sustained rear-end damage, landed in the southbound ditch, and was towed out by Jack’s Towing, and a silver Pontiac Transport van that careened into trees off the northbound side of the road and was removed by Davis Towing.

Missouri Department of Transportation personnel were summoned to the crash scene to clear the roadway and reduce the likelihood of further crashes.
