At about 7:35 last night 68 year old Elias Hererra-Limon of Tulsa was driving his 2000 Dodge Dakota westbound on Interstate 44, eight miles east of Lebanon. The Tulsa man had a blowout of one of his tires and the Dakota swerved back and forth off the road before hitting an embankment and overturning several times. The Dakota came to rest on its side.
Hererra-Limon was wearing his seat belt and suffered serious injuries. His passenger, 21 year old David Hererra of Milwaukee, WI, was also wearing his seat belt and suffered serious injuries. They were both taken to Springfield by air ambulance.
