Columbia Residents Injured In Boone County Accident

Two Columbia residents were injured in a two-vehicle accident on eastbound Route 40 just west of I-70 in Boone County at noon Sunday. The State Highway Patrol says an SUV driven by 28-year old Samuel Dowell of Lawrence, Kansas, attempted to make a left turn and traveled into the path of a vehicle driven by 45-year old Shilo Dorman of Columbia. Dorman received minor injuries and a passenger, 72-year old Janet Dorman received moderate injuries. Both were taken to Columbia. Dowell was not hurt, but he was arrested for felony DWI and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
