PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (Oct. 26, 2015) — Two separate single-vehicle weekend wrecks totaled both vehicles, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.
The worst of the two wrecks happened about 2:20 a.m. Sunday, injuring three St. Robert residents with two of the three seriously injured and transported by Lifeline air ambulance. Troopers reported that Tiffany A. Fleeger, 27, had been driving a 2002 Ford Explorer eastbound on I-44 at mile marker 161 in Saint Robert when she ran off the left side of the interstate and overturned.
Neither Fleeger nor her two passengers, Jeremiah R. Carrasco, 15, and Ashley Teel, 26, had been wearing their seatbelts. Fleeger was transported to Phelps County Regional Medical Center in Rolla with moderate injuries but her two passengers were airlifted to Mercy Hospital in Springfield. Their vehicle was removed by Jack’s Towing.
The other crash happened early Saturday morning when Brian Lambe, 29, of Waynesville, was driving a 1999 Jeep Cherokee northbound on Highway Y north of St. Robert, ran off the left side of the roadway at 1:15 a.m. near Lemming Lane, overturned, and struck a mailbox.
Lambe, who had been wearing his seatbelt, suffered only minor injuries and was treated and released. His vehicle was removed by Jack’s Towing.
