Dixon wreck hurts Arkansas man
DIXON, Mo. (May 4, 2009) — An Arkansas man totaled his car and suffered moderate injuries Sunday morning after running off the side of Highway O, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers reported that John G. Davis, 76, of Jonesboro, Ark., was eastbound on Highway O about four miles away from Dixon at 11 a.m. Sunday when he ran his 1997 Chevrolet Monte Carlo off the right side of the roadway, struck a highway sign and returned to the roadway. He then crossed the center line, ran off the left side of the roadway and struck a tree.

Davis, who had been wearing his seat belt, was taken to Phelps County Regional Medical Center for treatment of moderate injuries. His vehicle was removed by Pro-Tow of Dixon.

Troopers also made two unrelated arrests during the weekend in Pulaski County:

• Lance N. Townsend, 28, of Fort Leonard Wood, was arrested at 11:24 p.m. Saturday on charges of driving while intoxicated, driving while his license was suspended, failure to yield and failure to wear his seat belt. Troopers took him to the Pulaski County Jail where he was eligible for bond.

• James T. Gibson, 31, of Hinesville, Ga., was arrested at 2 a.m. Sunday on charges of driving while intoxicated and careless and imprudent driving. Troopers took him to the Pulaski County Jail where he was eligible for bond.
