Jefferson City man hurt in one-car wreck

July 19th, 2018 in Local News

A Jefferson City man was hurt in a one vehicle crash Tuesday night in the Capital City.

According to police reports, the crash occurred around 8:40 p.m. in the 7300 block of Algoa Road.

Bakari Moody, 20, was going west on Algoa, approaching Rising Creek Bridge. He went off the right side of the road and straddled the guard rail, then went airborne and down into the creek bed.

The vehicle struck the ground below the bridge and tumbled into the west side concrete bridge support.

Evidence from the crash scene suggested Moody, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected through the sunroof opening on the top of the vehicle.

Moody was found lying in the roadway and told officers he crawled to the road from the creek and said he had been thrown from the vehicle.

He was taken to a local hospital for treatment of chest and back pain.
