Man runs car off bridge onto Interstate 44 in Waynesville
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (April 2, 2009) — A Richland man ran his car off the Highway H overpass at Exit 156 in Waynesville early Wednesday morning before landing on the Interstate 44 shoulder, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers reported that Gary D. Hicks, 51, was southbound at 1:55 a.m. in his 1999 Lincoln Town Car when he went through a stop sign and off an embankment onto the shoulder of the interstate, extensively damaging his car and seriously injuring himself.

Hicks, who had not been wearing his seat belt, was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to St. John’s Hospital in Lebanon for treatment. His vehicle was removed by Jack’s Towing.

In unrelated incidents, troopers reported three arrests Tuesday in Pulaski County of people from other counties:

• Marc W. Robertson, 33, of Rolla, was arrested at 1:02 p.m. on an Oct. 25, 2007, Pleasant Hope warrant for failure to appear on a speeding charge. Robertson was transported to the Pulaski County Jail where he was eligible for bond.

• Christy L. Tennyson, 20, of Rolla, and Brian L. Radford, 20, of St. James, were both arrested at 9 p.m. in Pulaski County on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance and possession of methamphetamine precursors. Both were transported to the Pulaski County Jail and placed on a 24-hour hold.
