Airborne debris hits car, hurts driver
PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (March 18, 2009) — An object kicked up by a semi truck caused a crash that hurt one person on Interstate 44 near the Pulaski County line Tuesday night, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers said a 2007 International semi truck driven by Michael A. Miller, 47, of Sumava Resorts, Ind., was eastbound at 8 p.m. near mile marker 168 when his semi ran over an object in the roadway that then struck the driver’s side door of a 2004 Jeep driven by Michelle L. White, 38, of Mabank, Texas, that was also being driven eastbound.

White suffered minor injuries but refused treatment at the crash scene. Her vehicle sustained moderate damage but was still drivable. The semi driver had no injuries and his truck was not damaged.

Both drivers had been wearing their seat belts.

In an unrelated Tuesday incident just five minutes earlier, troopers arrested Joseph A. Long, 40, of Columbus, Ga., on charges of driving while intoxicated (first offense) and driving the wrong direction on a divided highway. Troopers took him to the Pulaski County Jail where he was subsequently released.
