Search Continues for Drunk Driving Suspect

The search continues for Joshua McFerrin who ran from Mercy Hospital on Saturday night, as police were closing in to arrest him for a fatal drunk driving accident. The Missouri State Highway Patrol arrived at Mercy Hospital in Washington to arrest McFerrin after two passengers in his car were killed in a suspected drunk driving accident. McFerrin was driving west bound on Highway 100 in Villa Ridge when he made a turn onto Highway M and collided with a vehicle driven by Jo Knipe of Robertsville. Two passengers in McFerrin's car, Mitchell Mantels of Villa Ridge, and Tarlton Stephens of St. Clair, were killed in crash. Another passenger, Shanna Wilken of St. Clair, was seriously injured. McFarrin was last seen fleeing toward the Missouri River in Washington. Sheriff Gary Toelke said police are still searching for McFerrin and tips from people calling in to the sheriff’s department are helping to narrow the search.
