Lebanon driver allegedly leaves scene of interstate accident

An April 10, car accident resulted in multiple traffic violations for a 31-year-old male driver from Lebanon. At approximately 6:55 p.m., a 43-year-old driver contacted local police to report a suspected drunk driver on Route MM. The alleged drunk driver was traveling in a Chevrolet Monte Carlo when he narrowly missed hitting the 43-year-old driver's vehicle in a full head-on collision. Police report that the other driver proceeded to follow the Chevrolet driver, at which point he swerved and nearly collided with two additional vehicles.

After following the alleged drunk driver to the intersection of Glencastle Lane and Tower Road, the pursuing driver reported that the Chevrolet driver stopped his vehicle and ran to his mother's nearby home. Police say that the Chevrolet driver ignored orders to stop running and that they eventually removed him from the home. When questioned by officers about the damage to his car, including a missing driver's side front wheel, he reported not being able to remember.

During a search of his person, a responding officer discovered drug paraphernalia in the driver's pocket. The driver was given multiple citations after a Missouri State Highway Patrol investigation was launched into the accident. The citations issued included driving on a revoked license, careless and imprudent driving, leaving the scene of a motor accident and the unlawful use of drug paraphernalia. After booking at the local police station, the driver was released from police custody.

It is unclear to what extent, if any, the other three vehicles involved in the alleged hit-and-run interstate incident were damaged. Since there were no reported injuries in the near accidents and no criminal charges filed, a defense lawyer may be able to have one or more of the citations dropped. The fact that he was being pursued by the other driver may also be used in the defense strategy if it can be shown that the Chevrolet driver had reason to flee.
