Deputies responded to the scene of the wreck in the 7500 block of Blandville Road around 10 a.m. Wednesday.

The van was driven by 54-year-old Rickie Byerly of Scott City Missouri, who told deputies he was stopped because a dump truck was in front of him, picking up debris.
Fowler was charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence on the second offense, two counts of first degree wanton endangerment, two counts of first degree criminal mischief, possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle, second degree possession of a controlled substance, prescription not in a proper container, failure to maintain insurance, no registration receipt, illegal possession of a legend drug and failure to notify address change to the department of transportation
