Accident leads to drug arrest in Callaway

Three Fulton residents were injured in a one-car accident Sunday in Callaway County and the driver was arrested on four felony drug charges.

Arrested was Shamecca D. Harrison, 29, Fulton. The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported Harrison was arrested on four felony counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of less than 35 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Sustaining moderate injuries in the accident were Brittany B. Case, 19, and Eric M. Weiser, 25. They were passengers in a car driven by Harrison, who sustained minor injuries. All are from Fulton.

All three were taken by ambulance to University Hospital in Columbia.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported the accident was at 1:28 a.m. Sunday on U.S. 54 near County Road 209, just south of Kingdom City.

The patrol reported the accident occurred when Harrison’s westbound 2001 Hyundai went out of control “due to inattention and excessive speed.” The car ran off the right side of the road, struck a ditch and overturned.

The patrol reported none of the three occupants of the vehicle was wearing a seat belt. The vehicle was demolished.

Harrison was not included in the list of wanted persons following a multi-jurisdictional drug warrant roundup conducted April 14 in Callaway and Cole counties.
