Waynesville motorcyclist seriously injured in Friday night wreck

SAINT ROBERT, Mo. (April 2, 2022) -- St. Robert police saw a late-night Friday motorcycle crash on I-44, searched for the motorcyclist after he lost control and ran off the roadway near Exit 163, and assisted other agencies as the motorcyclist was transported for treatment of serious injuries.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports, Alan P. Holbrook, 31, of Waynesville, had been westbound at 11:37 p.m. when he lost control of his 2022 Harley Davidson, ran off the right side of the roadway at mile marker 163.8, and struck the guardrail before coming to rest.

Holbrook, who had been wearing his helmet, was transported by Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel to General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital (GLWACH), from which U.S. Army Fort Leonard Wood ambulance personnel transported him for further treatment at another facility. St. Robert Fire and Rescue personnel also assisted at the crash scene.

His motorcycle was totaled and removed by Jacks Wrecker and Recovery. Onsite Towing & Recovery LLC was originally called, but due to the seriousness of the injuries, the tow company owner, who also serves as the county coroner, deferred to a different tow company to avoid potential conflicts of interest. That's been the practice of Roger Graves II since being elected to the Pulaski County Coroner's Office when he receives tow calls for his business that could conflict with his part-time elected position.
