Rolla, MO (May 3, 2022) – Authorities were dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Interstate 44 that sent two men to area hospitals with injuries. At around 1:44 a.m., on May 1, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash in Phelps County.
Reports provided by local authorities show that a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado was stopped on the eastbound side of Interstate 44 near mile marker 192.2. For unknown reasons, it was struck by a 2014 Toyota Avalon. The impact of the crash sent the Chevrolet off the left side of the road where it struck a guard rail.
Two people involved in the crash were injured. St James Ambulance transported 51-year-old Stanley Smith and 52-year-old Christopher Launders to Phelps Health for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Stanley Smith and Christopher Lauders at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
