Ferbet is reported to have serious injuries and was transported by LifeFlight Eagle to Truman Medical Center. 

Ferbet is reported to have worn a safety device. 

Ferbet was later arrested on charges of driving while intoxicated and careless and imprudent driving resulting in a crash. 

The Ford is reported as totaled.
