So whatever that takes in your vehicle, just make sure you’re you have that with you in your vehicle. Whether that’s blankets good pair of boots obviously the right clothing. So extra coat whatever it may take.”
MoDOT Central District Area Engineer Danny Roeger adds that the state does have some incident response vehicles but they are mainly patrolling the interstates.
If you are involved in an accident or become stranded on statewide roadways, you can call the highway patrol’s star-55 to report your situation and get appropriate help heading your way.
