An alleged intoxicated teenager sends a 5-year-old boy and his grandfather to the hospital after hitting them nearly head-on on Highway 90 near Noel Sunday morning.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol tells Newstalk KZRG 17-year-old Maria Sanchez-Morales of Anderson crossed the centerline, hitting 53-year-old Brothen Bima’s car. Bima and the boy were transported to a Joplin hospital with moderate injuries.
Sanchez-Rosales was charged with a DWI resulting in physical injury, failure to drive on the right side of the road, and minor in possession of alcohol. She was not injured, and transported to the McDonald County Jail. She has since been released.
