State troopers arrest SR man for DWI after plowing into two parked cars
SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (June 13, 2009) — State troopers in Phelps County reported Saturday that they charged a St. Robert man with crashing into two parked cars while driving drunk earlier that morning.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Khayree A. Darton, 29, was eastbound on the Powellville Outer Road about five miles west of Jerome at 1:50 a.m. when he ran his 2007 Chevrolet Impala off the right side of the roadway and struck a parked 1994 Acura Legend which then struck a parked 1992 Ford Crown Victoria, both of which had been parked facing south with nobody inside. Darton’s car then rotated 180 degrees and came to rest facing west.

All three vehicles were extensively damaged and the two parked vehicles were left at the scene of the crash. Darton’s car was removed by Jack’s Towing of St. Robert.

Darton, who had not been wearing his seat belt, suffered minor injuries but refused treatment at the scene. He was subsequently arrested at 3:42 a.m. and transported to the Phelps County Jail, where he was cited for careless and imprudent driving involving an accident, driving while intoxicated as a prior offender, driving while his license was revoked and driving without using his seat belt.

Troopers reported that they placed Darton on a 24-hour hold at the jail.
