Infant dies from injuries in automobile accident

Thursday, September 21, 2006

BIRCH TREE -- A 1-year-old infant, David Rowlett of Thomasville, has died as the result of injuries he suffered in an automobile accident Sept. 5.

The accident occurred on U.S. 60 and Highway 99 in Birch Tree.

Rowlett died Sept. 8 at St. John's Hospital in Springfield, according to Troop G of the Missouri Highway Patrol.

Rowlett was taken by air ambulance to the Springfield hospital after the 1995 Plymouth driven by his mother, Kimberly Rowlett, failed to yield the right-of-way and drove into the path of a 1992 Chevrolet driven by Emanuel Earwood, 77, of Willard.

The elder Rowlett was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Mountain View where she was treated and released.
