•On Oct. 3, an officer was dispatched to Texas County Memorial Hospital for a report of a vehicle leaving the scene of an accident.
A TCMH official told the officer that at about 8:15 a.m., a yellow box truck had driven under an awning at the back side of the facility and struck the awning. Surveillance video showed the truck slow for a moment, but then leave and travel south on U.S. 63.
On Oct. 4, the officer observed a truck matching the description traveling north on U.S. 63 and conducted a traffic stop. The driver – a 55-year-old Florissant man – claimed to not know he had struck the awning, but the officer said he didn’t believe that due to a witness at the hospital hearing the accident and indicating the truck shook after the impact.
