Staff report



Shaun Embry|Logan County Sheriff’s Department The 1998 Buick driven by 29-year-old Matthew Embry of Belton was severly damaged in a crash Wednesday morning just north of Lewisburg.


A two-vehicle accident on Wednesday morning sent a 29-year-old to the hospital, amazingly with only non-life-threatening injuries.

On Wednesday morning, the Logan County Sheriff’s Department responded to a car crash on 431 North, just north of the Lewisburg city limits.

Matthew Scott Embry, 29 of Belton, was driving a 1998 Buick south towards Lewisburg. Pat Freels, 62 of Island, was driving a 2001 Peterbuilt pulling an empty flatbed trailer and heading north away from Lewisburg.

Upon investigation, it was discovered that Embry lost control of his vehicle and crossed into the northbound lane, causing sever damage to the driver’s side of his vehicle when his car collided with a rear axle of the semi-trailer. The impact caused the axle to break off the trailer and travel off the right-hand side of the road.

Embry was transported to Logan Memorial Hospital by Logan County EMS and was listed in stable condition.

Freels was not injured from the accident and was not treated at the scene.

Sgt. Shaun Embry of the Logan County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the accident. He was assisted on the scene by Logan County Sheriff Wallace Whittaker and members of the Lewisburg Fire Department.
