Eric Mulvania (53) of Tarkio was driving a 2011 Dodge pickup northbound on 13th Street in Tarkio on Wednesday, December 28, 2016, when he lost control of the truck. The truck left the roadway after crossing the center and striking a tree at the Heartland Recreation Center’s south driveway entrance. The vehicle continued to travel up over the curb and through the parking lot, eventually coming to rest in front of the building’s west door.
Upon emergency personal’s arrival, Mulvania was determined to have no injuries from the crash and was arrested for DWI, and ultimately charged for DWI (3rd) persistent offender, Careless and Imprudent Driving, and Driving While Revoked, through the Atchison County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Mulvania was held until bond was posted the next day at the Atchison County Sheriff’s Office.
Mulvania’s vehicle was removed from the scene by Top Secret Towing upon the police department’s request. Atchison-Holt Ambulance Service, Tarkio Volunteer Fire Department, Missouri State Highway Patrol, and Tarkio Police Department all responded.
