Three Gorin Residents Injured In Crash On Highway 136

This 1991 Ford Escort was totaled in a one-car crash on Highway 136, three miles east of Memphis on May 22.

The lives of three Gorin residents were turned upside down, literally, when their vehicle was involved in a one-car crash on Highway 136 three miles east of Memphis at 12:31 p.m. on May 22.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Lawrence Davis, 19, was westbound on Highway 136 in a 1991 Ford Escort when the vehicle ran off the right side of the roadway. The car then re-entered the road where the driver apparently over-corrected, forcing the vehicle off the right side of the roadway again. It overturned on the driver's side and slid into a fence and a tree before coming to rest on the vehicle's roof.

Lawrence Davis was able to exit the car but two passengers, Andrea Davis, 18, and infant Kyle Davis were trapped in the vehicle, suspended upside down.

The Scotland County Rescue Squad used the Jaws of Life to extricate the two crash victims. The unit's hydraulic airbags were used to stabilize the car prior to cutting an entrance into the vehicle. A fireman was able to crawl into the car and remove the child from his child safety-seat in the backseat. The firemen continued to use the Jaws of Life unit to cut into the passenger side of the car to extricate Andrea Davis from the vehicle.

All three victims were transported by Scotland County Ambulance to Scotland County Memorial Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.

Lawrence Davis was ticketed for failure to drive on the right half of the roadway and no seatbelt.

The Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Scotland County Sheriff's Department, Scotland County Ambulance Service, Scotland County Fire and Rescue and the Missouri Department of Transportation.

The vehicle was totaled in the crash and was towed from the scene.
