Missouri: Connecticut man arrested for DWI after Sedalia crash

Saturday, February 11, 2017

A Connecticut man was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated after a single-vehicle accident Tuesday night in Sedalia. According to a Sedalia Police Department report, Charles L. Price, 58, of Westbrook, Connecticut, was arrested at 6:08 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of East Broadway Boulevard and South Harding Avenue.

At 5:30 p.m., a witness called SPD to report a vehicle that rolled over off of East Broadway Boulevard. SPD Sgt. Josh Howell told the Democrat on scene that the witness reported the eastbound pickup truck was traveling at a high rate of speed.

During the investigation, it was determined Price was intoxicated, the report states. Howell said evidence at the scene suggests the truck struck and severed a light pole, struck a road sign, hit a ditch, went airborne, hit a parked white vehicle, then went airborne again and struck a parked ambulance. The two damaged vehicles were parked in the parking lot of Old 50 Wraps & Tints, 3200 E. 12th St.

The electric line connected to the light pole was severed, but was not across the roadway. KCP&L was called to the scene to repair the damaged pole and line.

No serious injuries were reported, but Price was taken by Pettis County Ambulance District to Bothwell Regional Health Center to receive medical treatment. He was then taken to the Pettis County Jail and placed on a 24-hour hold pending the filing of charges by the Pettis County Prosecuting Attorney’s office. Formal charges were not available at press time.
