Missouri State Highway Patrol were dispatched to the location. TPR. K.L. Knight of Troop D processed the crash scene.
The female driver was the only occupant and declined to be transported to a hospital.
The vehicle was traveling southbound, left the roadway at a sharp curve, striking a culvert, going airborne and rolling.
The vehicle was removed from the scene by Chuck’s Towing while Redings Mill Fire District controlled traffic for a time.
UPDATE: The driver, Bailey Callahan, 30 years old, has been charged with DWI and C&I Driving (Careless and Imprudent). She was booked and released by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
This section of MO-86 winds through Newton County with sharp curves that require the suggested slow-down. This crash occurred at the same curve where a Joplin man was killed in a motorcycle crash in October of 2018. However the victim in that crash was not intoxicated.
