COLUMBIA, Missouri (KMIZ)

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reminds drivers to be careful when hitting the roads for a busy vacation day, during the last day of the Highway Patrol’s 2021 Thanksgiving Vacation countdown period.

Soldiers also made 100 DWI arrests during last year’s count period, with 78 additional drug arrests.

Additional soldiers patrolled all major roads in Missouri over the holiday weekend, such as I-70, Hwy 63 AND Hwy 54.

Corporal Kyle Green said Sunday would be an important travel day.

“Today is a very busy travel day, you can expect all major highways and highways to be quite busy,” Green said.

Green said it’s not uncommon for accidents to happen on days of heavy traffic and it’s important to drive safely.

“Make sure everyone has a seat belt, make sure you don’t speed up, make sure you don’t ride with someone who is impaired or yourself,” Green said.

Green said drowsiness is common when driving for long periods of time. Green recommends that drivers take occasional breaks to wake up.

The patrol said too many people die in crashes each year and driving safety must be a priority.

This year, soldiers said drivers should “make sure their vehicles are in good condition and are well rested before they start driving.” “Too many people die each year in traffic accidents in Missouri,” the MSHP said in a press release. “The choices you make while behind the wheel are important. “

Col. Eric T. Olson, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, also reminded drivers to expect increased traffic during the holiday season and to prepare for changes to normal driver routes.

Increased patrols are planned during the Thanksgiving holiday

Commissioner Jeff Long of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security (TDSOHS) and Col. Matt Perry of the Tennessee Highway Patrol (THP) joined several law enforcement partners to announce the safety initiative road “Tennessee Safe Travel Challenge”.

The Tennessee Safe Travel Challenge is scheduled for Wednesday November 24 and Sunday November 28. The challenge is increased patrols from the THP and our law enforcement partners across the state. Law enforcement will focus their attention along the I-40 corridor. I-40 runs the length of Tennessee, encompassing 455 miles, and travels 2,555 miles through eight states, including North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. The THP will continue to apply statewide on all roads in Tennessee during the holiday season.

“Our mission is to prevent road fatalities, a single loss of life is never acceptable,” said Col. Matt Perry. “Motorists can expect to see an increased presence of soldiers on some of the busiest travel days of the Thanksgiving holiday. It is important that we all obey the rules of the road. We can prevent traffic-related injuries and deaths by obeying the speed limit, wearing our seat belts, never driving distracted, and never driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

In 2020, there were 26 accidents the previous Wednesday and 30 accidents Sunday after the Thanksgiving vacation on I-40. One of the accidents was related to alcohol. THP issued 2,209 speeding tickets and 498 seat belt tickets and arrested 111 people for impaired driving.

During the 108-hour vacation period, there were six fatalities, three of the fatalities were alcohol-related, and three people killed were not wearing their seat belts. Please see the attached Thanksgiving THP 2020 Final Holiday Report attached.

“Thanksgiving is an opportunity to reflect on all that we have been blessed with,” said Commissioner Jeff Long. “The Tennessee Highway Patrol will do everything in its power to make sure there is no empty spot at your family’s table. We want our citizens and visitors to get to and from their destinations safely. “

“TDOT is proud to join our security partners in this effort,” said Commissioner Joe Galbato. “I-40 is one of the busiest interstate corridors in the country; that’s why our regional assistance trucks will be working throughout the holiday weekend to help with any incidents. And to further avoid traffic jams, we will not allow lane closures for construction from noon on Wednesday November 24 until midnight on Sunday evening November 28. “

“THSO encourages everyone to plan ahead for safety this Thanksgiving,” said THSO director Buddy Lewis. “Make sure you are well rested before traveling long distances. Take breaks as needed. Don’t drive drowsy. Set up your GPS and make phone calls in advance so you can be focused and hands-free for driving. Always fasten your seat belt and check that your child passengers are properly buckled.

When traveling through Tennessee, please dial * 847 (* THP) if you require roadside assistance. This will connect you to a THP splitter.

Date of publication: 11-18-2021

There’s an old saying that TV rots your brain, but for Seth Gruber, 23, of Russell, it didn’t. In fact, his fondness for crime shows led to his career in law enforcement.

“Criminal justice has always been an area that interested me since I was young,” he said. “I have always been fascinated by all the little details that investigators have discovered during various investigations that you would see on television.”

Gruber found his way to law enforcement through Barton’s Emergency Medical Services program. He found out that taking EMS courses would count towards his criminal justice degree, so he immersed himself in Barton’s curriculum, including the field operations day filled with real-life scenarios that the department hosts each spring.

“I was able to participate in the Field Operations Day with the EMS program in 2017 and I was very happy that I did, as it was a great opportunity to see how all the agencies are working together and to see some scenarios that I might face in the future, “he said.” Then as part of the criminal justice program, I was also able to participate in the law enforcement component of the day of field operations at the Spring 2018. Again, this was a great opportunity to bring in certified agents from surrounding areas. Share with us the scenarios they’ve faced before and provide us with guidance to ensure we have sustainable careers. “

However, it was not only the hands-on experience he gained from the day of field operations that he found beneficial.

“Some of my closest friends of Barton who were in the criminal justice program at the same time as me are now certified law enforcement officers statewide, and they are a valuable tool and resource to contact, ”he said.

Gruber left Barton with his associate degree in criminal justice in 2018. However, he was still too young to enroll in the Kansas Highway Patrol training program. one day hoped to protect and serve as a law enforcement officer. He also volunteered as an EMT for the departments of Hoisington and Moundridge.

Gruber turned 21 at the end of 2018 and enrolled in the KHP program. He was hired in June 2019 and stationed in western Kansas along Interstate 70 in Logan County.

While there were many agencies that Gruber could have worked for, choosing the KHP was a no-brainer.

“I chose to become a State Trooper because they have always been considered the elite group in Kansas,” he said. “Plus, there are no borders or limits on jurisdiction or restrictions on where they can go to help someone in need.”

Gruber said he took the job knowing it was a difficult job, but vital to the very existence of our company. Her everyday life is filled with unknowns, but that’s part of her appeal.

“Law enforcement officers are a necessity to hold everyone accountable for their actions, whether someone is watching or not,” he said. “My favorite part is never knowing what my day will be or who I will have the opportunity to meet. The views of my office from my patrol vehicle are something you won’t find anywhere else. “

While Mr. Covrett was changing the tire, a red 2006 Peterbilt semi-trailer driven by Paulo Dasilva, 67, of Newark, New Jersey, pulled off the right side of the road, colliding with the horse trailer and Mr. Covrett. The semi-trailer continued on all three lanes of traffic before coming to a stop in the median.

Mr. Covrett was pronounced dead at the scene by the Richland County Coroner. Mr. Dasilva suffered no injuries as a result of the accident. Ms. Coder was outside the vehicle at the time of the accident, but suffered no injuries. Three horses were in the trailer but were not injured in the accident either.

The accident is currently the subject of further investigation. ODOT, Richland County Coroner’s Office, Troy and Washington Twp. Fire and EMS, and Shelly Smith and Son’s Towing responded to the scene. The road was closed during the initial investigation but is now reopened for travel.
