Moberly man faces DWI charges for fatal St. Louis crash | Mid-Missouri News

A Moberly resident, David Brown, was indicted on Wednesday for drunk driving related to a fatal accident that resulted in the death of a St. Louis man on December 16. Brown, 42, faces serious charges including a felony for driving while intoxicated and causing death, and two misdemeanors for failing to stay on the correct side of the road and driving without a legit license. The accident occurred at 1:51 a.m. on Highway 124 in Howard County. Joshua McNabb, 39-year-old, a passenger in Brown’s vehicle, died at the spot. Brown, who was driving a Honda CRV, failed to navigate a turn, causing the vehicle to veer off the road, crash into a ditch, and overturn. A Highway Patrol trooper, who reached the scene, stated that Brown smelled of alcohol, was visibly unsteady, and could not comply with instructions for a breathalyzer test. Despite being charged at the scene, Brown was released for medical care due to his injuries. He was subsequently arrested on Thursday and is currently held at the Howard County Jail with a cash-only bond of $50,000. His first court hearing is slated for 9 a.m. on December 26.
