Vehicle hits tree, driver flees scene on foot
A Washburn woman was injured Saturday in a wreck at 12:10 a.m. on Highway 86, three miles north of Wheaton.
According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Kyle Musick, 24, of Bentonville, Ark., was driving a 2002 Subaru Forester northbound when his vehicle ran off the roadway and struck a tree.
Musick allegedly fled the scene on foot, so his injuries, if any, are unknown. A passenger in the vehicle, Amber Morgan, 29, of Washburn, suffered moderate injuries and was transported to Cox Monett Hospital.
Morgan was wearing a safety device, and it is unknown if Musick was wearing one. The vehicle was totaled.
