A Dupo man was airlifted to a St. Louis hospital for treatment of serious injuries sustained when the moped he was driving crashed in the 1200 block of Jacob Lane in Maeystown about 5 p.m. last Wednesday.

The patient, who was wedged under the parked car following the crash, was flown by Survival Flight medical helicopter to Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. He was identified as Richard Glockner, 58, of Dupo.

Police said Glockner was driving a 1980 Yamaha moped south down a hill on Hannah Lane at Jacob Lane shortly before 5 p.m. when he accidentally accelerated instead of braking, lost control and veered into the driveway at 1234 Jacob Lane. The moped overturned in the driveway, the accident report states, and Glockner was ejected. He slid through an open garage door and underneath a parked car in the garage.

The Maeystown Fire Department, Monroe County Sheriff’s Department and Monroe County EMS responded to the crash.
