Two Injured In Missouri Drunk Driving Accident
March 5, 2013
Charges have been filed against a 44-year-old St. Louis woman who was responsible for causing a Missouri Drunk Driving Accident that left two other motorists seriously injured. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the crash happened on October 13 of last year, at around 2:45 p.m., along Highway 40/61 near the town of Moscow Mills.
Reports indicate the woman responsible for the accident was driving a Chevrolet Lumina sedan southbound in the northbound lanes of the highway when she collided nearly head-on with an Isuzu Rodeo being driven by a 61-year-old male.
The impact left the driver of the Rodeo with serious injuries including several broken bones and internal injuries. A 34-year-old male passenger in the Rodeo also sustained severe lacerations and dislocated bones. They were treated at a local hospital and released.
Investigators later determined the female driver was almost double the legal blood-alcohol content limit at the time of the accident. They also found an empty vodka bottle in her car. The woman was then charged with two counts of felony assault while intoxicated resulting in injury and operating a motor vehicle in a careless manner.
