The driver of a Toyota RAV4 will be investigated for driving while intoxicated after taking the vehicle down a steep hillside off of R Street in Hannibal Thursday afternoon. Were it not for a patch of trees it’s likely the SUV would have plunged the rest of the way down the hill and into an above-ground swimming pool.
The driver of the ‘97 Toyota, who police declined to identify, refused medical treatment at the scene.
Nearby residents reported not hearing anything.
“I came out and saw the ambulance,” said Belinda McNary. “That scared me.”
“I saw something go down the hill (R Street), but I was half asleep,” said Morgan McNary.
Belinda McNary reported it was the third accident on the hilly street in recent memory.
“It’s a scary hill,” she said.
