A Marshall man suffered moderate injuries early Sunday, Jan. 18, in a one-vehicle crash in Lafayette County, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

Mark A. Farrelly, 20, was westbound on Missouri Highway 20 about 5:45 a.m. when he apparently failed to negotiate a curve, troopers said.

The 1997 Chrysler he was driving went off the left side of the roadway and overturned, coming to rest on its wheels in a ditch, according to the report.

Farrelly was taken by ambulance to Fitzgibbon Hospital in Marshall, troopers said.

Lafayette County sheriff's deputies assisted at the scene.
