RIDDLE BRIDGE, Mo. (June 9, 2010) — A St. Robert teenager totaled her car in a Wednesday evening wreck on the public fishing access on the Gasconade River between Highway Y and Cave Road, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.

Troopers reported that Heather M. Kaufman, 17, had been parked at the Riddle Bridge fishing access when she abruptly accelerated her 2003 Ford Focus westbound about 5:45 p.m., lost control of her vehicle on gravel and then struck a large boulder, suffering minor injuries.

Kaufman, who had not been wearing her seatbelt, was transported by private vehicle to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital for treatment. Her vehicle was removed by Jack’s Towing of Waynesville.
