A Slater woman suffered minor injuries early Friday, April 23, in a one-vehicle accident on state Highway 240, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.
Brittany T. Terry, 22, of Slater, declined medical treatment at the scene, troopers said.
The accident occurred about 1:20 a.m. as Terry was eastbound one-half mile east of County Road 270.
She apparently lost control of the 1996 Mazda she was driving while attempting to avoid hitting a deer, troopers said.
The car went off the roadway and overturned. Terry was wearing a safety device, according to the report.
