Two Kaiser residents were hurt after crashing their motorcycle early Thursday morning in Miller County.
The Missouri Highway Patrol reported the crash occurred around 2:20 a.m. at Bagnell Dam.
Tretch Lawrence, 44, failed to negotiate a curve, striking the curb and ejecting the driver and his passenger, Carrie Lawrence, 43, off their motorcycle.

A patrol arrest report indicated Tretch was accused of DWI persistent offender, failure to maintain the right half of the road, not having insurance, driving a motorcycle without a helmet and failure to register a motor vehicle.
