Missouri roads are busy thoroughfares. Motor vehicle accidents continue to be problematic in the state. On occasion, drivers find themselves accused of alcohol-related offenses, which can sometimes lead to limited driving privileges.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol made several arrests in McDonald and Newton counties recently, saying that each was connected to drunk driving. One incident involved a 35-year-old woman who was said to have been operating an All Terrain Vehicle at approximately 1:30 a.m. when the vehicle went out of control; she was ejected from her seat. After being transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of her injuries, she was charged by law enforcement agents with a misdemeanor DWI.
