Richland man moderately hurt in wreck

RICHLAND, Mo. (June 21, 2014) — A Friday afternoon crash in Miller County near Route U moderately injured a Richland man while totaling the pickup in which he was a passenger, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers reported that Jeremy J. Olmstead, 31, of Stoutland, had been driving a 1993 Chevrolet S-10 pickup eastbound on Bentown Road three miles east of Route U at 1:20 p.m.  when he lost control on a gravel road, ran off the left side of the roadway and struck a tree.

Olmstead, who troopers reported had no insurance, suffered only minor injuries and refused medical treatment. However, neither he nor his passenger, Carl H. Hitt, 51, of Richland, were wearing their seat belts and Hitt suffered moderate injuries, being transported by ambulance to Lake Regional Hospital in Osage Beach.

The pickup was removed by Wood’s Towing of Eldon.
