That’s according to the highway patrol report which alleges that Ethan Daniels was westbound on Business-50, west of County Road Business-50, when the pickup he was driving ran off the road before returning back to the road and striking 46-year-old Jeremy Maupin, of Sedalia.
Maupin was seriously hurt and taken to a Jefferson City hospital.
Daniels was taken into custody and put in the Moniteau County Jail on a 24-hour hold.
Pending charges include: felony leaving the scene of a physical injury accident and second-degree assault, failing to drive on the right half of the roadway and a second charge for leaving the scene of an injury accident.
