Rock Port Man Injured In Wreck
04/19/2017

(KLZA)-- A Rock Port, Missouri man was seriously injured in a single vehicle wreck about a quarter mile east of Watson, Missouri Tuesday afternoon. 

The Missouri Highway Patrol report indicates 23-year-old Robert Kopejtka was northbound on Route D when the brakes failed on the 1994 GMC Straight Truck he was driving.

As Kopejtka came to a “T” intersection at Route D and Route A. The truck crossed route A, started to skid and struck an anhydrous ammonia storage tank on private property.  The anhydrous ammonia tank was knocked off its supports and tipped over onto its side. The truck came to rest facing east, pinning the driver in the cab. 

A Lifenet helicopter transported Kopejtka to University Hospital in Omaha with what were described as serious injuries.  The truck was totaled 

The Atchison County Sheriff’s Department, Rock Port Fire and West Atchison Fire Departments also responded to the scene of the wreck.
