An Eldon man is facing multiple charges including DWI after a wreck sends one person to the hospital on Sunday afternoon.

A Miller County prosecutor has charged Drew Danner with DWI - serious physical injury, failing to drive on the right half of the roadway, operating a vehicle without a valid license and possession of marijuana.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper responded to the wreck on Highway 52 near Pace Road in Miller County. Emergency personnel on the scene reported to the trooper that Danner smelled of marijuana, according to court documents.

The trooper spoke with Danner and asked him when the last time he smoked marijuana. Danner told the deputy "30 minutes ago."

During the investigation, the trooper searched Danner and found marijuana on him, according to court records.

The crash investigation revealed that Danner was too for the wet/rain conditions according to the probable cause statement.

According to online court records, Danner does not have a defense attorney listed at this time.
