PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. (July 6, 2011) — The July 4 weekend led to numerous arrests in Pulaski County but no serious crashes, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol reports.
The county’s one wreck happened on the evening of Independence Day when Jared A. Holloway, 23, of Richland, rolled his vehicle shortly after 7 p.m. while driving his green Toyota on Rochester Road about half a mile east of Highway 7 and was subsequently arrested at 7:54 p.m. on charges of driving while intoxicated, careless and imprudent driving, and failure to wear his seat belt.
Tri-County firefighters and state troopers on the crash scene said that neither Holloway nor the four passengers in the vehicle had been wearing their seat belts, but none suffered injuries serious enough to be transported by the Pulaski County Ambulance District personnel who responded. Holloway’s passengers were allowed by troopers to leave the crash scene; Holloway was transported to the Pulaski County Jail where he was eligible for bond.
The road remained blocked more than an hour, with Rothmund’s removing it after 8:30 p.m.
A complete crash report wasn’t immediately available due to the lack of injuries, but troopers and firefighters on the scene said the vehicle had skidded into a ditch, returned to the roadway, and rolled over onto its top.That was just one of five weekend arrests made in Pulaski County, all on charges that included drunk driving.
