3 hurt in 1-vehicle crash on Highway 240 early Sunday

Sunday, March 20, 2011

Three Slater residents were hurt, while the driver escaped uninjured, in a one-vehicle crash early Sunday, March 20, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

Matthew D. Campbell, 29, and Katie E. Lee, 31, suffered moderate injuries, and Candice M. Campbell, 23, suffered minor injuries in the crash, troopers said.

Each sought treatment on their own, according to the report. None of the injured were wearing a safety device, troopers said.

The driver of the 2006 Dodge was wearing a safety device. Cory J. Sanders, 28, was driving westbound on state Highway 240 about 1 miles east of Route P when the vehicle went off the left side of the roadway and struck a sign.

The vehicle continued west and struck a ditch, coming to rest in a field, troopers said.

The crash was not reported until eight hours after it occurred, according to the report. The investigation continues.

Glad all involved seem okay. I agree about not much live stock in the Glasgow bottoms, but I believe Route P is at Orearville.

So your telling me everytime someone runs off the road over-corrects and gets stuck in a ditch they should make it an amber alert and call national security due to the $20 waterway sign and the tire tracks into an open field (not a lot of farm critters in the Glasgow bottoms). No impairment and NO one was hurt, once vehicle was found unable to be removed proper authorities were notified.

I do however agree with momtoall as this was my main concern as well.

Yes, should have been reported immediately - there was property destruction (a sign was struck - hope it was not an essential warning sign of some sort!!!! - one MUST pay attention to the signs on 240!!!!). Also, came to rest in a field - we have had fence taken out and yet the report will be "in a field". Could be farm critters that need to be kept where they are. The usual reason for not reporting is that there was some sort of impairment involved, if it were a matter of illegal driving then it might have not even been reported at all. Just saying!! But come on, we all know we are to report an accident, even if only one vehicle is involved.

Wow...didn't mean to offend anyone, just wondering why the call wasn't made to the authorities after the accident. I am guessing the paper kinda makes it my business by running the article. It was obviously news worthy. I am sorry if this was you alikatt12 that was in the accident, just thought it to be odd to wait the 8 hrs to report the accident and I am glad all turned out to be okay. This is ia public forum and I am guessing if you think there should not be a comment section here, maybe you should talk to someone that works at the Democrat.

#1, I'd like to say myself and Curiousintown have wonderful lives. #2, What does "how long it takes a reporter to post an article" have to do with the crash being reported "eight hours later?" Im confused, I was always told that if I was in an accident, anytime of the day or night, with or without injuries, I was suppose to notify law enforcement as soon as possible. Still sounds fishy, why no one was notified, ambulance?, fire?, no one. Things that make you go hummmmmm. Not trying to start world war 3, I'm just saying...

I am glad they were able to wake up Sunday to see their children. Isn't that what should be everyone's main concern?

Seriously? You two need to get a life besides timing how long it takes the reporters to post an article about an insignificant wreck in which LUCKILY everyone was okay. Who cares if they got a ticket for leaving the scene - honestly, it's none of your business to begin with.

I agree with you stiffler. I wonder if leaving the scene of an accident chargers or a ticket was issued in this case.

-- Posted by Curiousintown on Mon, Mar 21, 2011, at 7:36 AM

Reported eight hours later. Hummmm, sounds fishy to me?
