PICKUP TRUCK ACCIDENT SENDS TWO MEN TO HOSPITAL

 

A Bond County Deputy, Greenville Firefighters, and Bond County EMS responded to the scene of a single-vehicle accident Sunday at 10:02 p.m. on Rt. 140 west of Daniken’s Tree Farm.  According to the accident report, Carlos Sergio, age 30, of Manchester, Missouri was eastbound on Rt. 140, about 7/10 of a mile east of Terrapin Ridge Road, when his 2004 Ford F150 pickup truck, allegedly ran off the right side of the road.  Sergio over steered to the left, causing the truck to slide sideways across the road into the left ditch.  The truck traveled 185 feet through the ditch before striking a tree head-on, flipping onto its right side and catching fire.  According to the fire report, Greenville Firefighters extinguished the fire and assisted in the search for other accident victims but found none.  Firefighters were on the scene for about an hour and a half.  Bond County EMS transported Sergio and a 27 year-old passenger, Carlos Florencio of O’Fallon, Missouri, to Greenville Regional Hospital for treatment.  Sergio was cited for alleged failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, improper lane usage, and DUI.
