Woman arrested after multiple injured in crash at Lake of the Ozarks


State troopers say a woman was arrested after a crash hurt multiple people in Camden County early Thursday morning.

Ashley Menke, 35, of Camdenton, was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, according to a highway patrol arrest report.

Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop F said in a crash report Menke was driving with three others in a passenger car near the intersection of Highway 7 and Old Nonsuch Road around 5:50 a.m.

According to the report, Menke failed to yield to a truck driven by 66-year-old Terry Williams as he turned onto the highway.

The patrol said both vehicles crashed in the northbound lane of the highway. Menke's passenger car and Williams' truck both went off the left side of the road and hit a fence, the report said.

Troopers say all four inside Menke's car were taken to the hospital. The crash report said two had serious injuries, another had moderate injuries and Menke had minor injuries.

No others were hurt in the crash, the patrol said.

The report said none of Menke's passengers were wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

It's unclear as of Friday if charges will be filed in the case.
