A single-vehicle traffic accident Monday morning at 8:42 on Highway A-C in Laclede County resulted in moderate injuries for a 16-year-old male juvenile from Richland.
The highway patrol says the juvenile was traveling eastbound on Route A-C and fell asleep, crossed the center line, and ran off the left side of the roadway. His 1997 Nissan Sentra struck a mailbox, a fence, a utility pole, and a tree before overturning and coming to rest on its top. The Richland juvenile was taken to Mercy Hospital in Lebanon by Mercy E-M-S for treatment of his injuries.
