A single car accident occurred just outside of Bowling Green on Airport Road Tuesday morning, according to Pike County Sheriff Stephen Korte.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol Trooper Long, Robert Henderson, of Bowling Green, was travelling down Airport Road when he lost control of the vehicle and travelled off the roadway. Korte said he was the first on the scene and the driver did not report any injuries at that time.

According to Korte and confirmed by Long, the driver’s vehicle struck a power pole on Airport Road, breaking the pole and causing lines to go down. The Sheriff noted that the lines did not hit the ground.

The driver was the only occupant of the passenger car involved in the accident, and had no injuries. According to a representative from the Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop C, the accident did not have a pending report as of press time, indicating the wreck was not an “injury accident.”

Following the occurrence, officers from the Bowling Green Police Department were blocking traffic to the roadway until the downed power lines could be repaired.
