In the same haphazard manner in which he steered the Show-Me ship of state, former Mo. Governor Matt Blunt took to the Springfieldian streets to wreak havoc upon the Vespa-riding citizenry.
Officers said Blunt crashed his sport utility vehicle into a man riding a scooter at a central Springfield intersection around 7 p.m. Monday.
The 21-year-old scooter driver was taken to a local hospital with scrapes on a forearm and a bruise on his head. His name was not released.
Blunt was issued a summons for failing to yield the right of way.
Authorities believe the monoterm politician was in a hurry to make it to the local Office Depot before it closed in order to purchase a new paper shredder.
