Sunday, October 10, 2010

A Blackburn man suffered minor injuries Saturday afternoon, Oct. 9, in a one-vehicle crash in Saline County, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

George F. Sinklear, 56, declined treatment at the scene, troopers said.

The crash occurred at 2:50 p.m. as Sinklear was traveling westbound on state Highway 20 near Box Elder Avenue, according to the report.

The 1992 Buick he was driving went off the right side of the road. Sinklear overcorrected and the vehicle went off the right side of the road again, troopers said.

The car went up an embankment and overturned, coming to rest on the passenger's side, according to the report.

Sinklear was wearing a safety device, troopers said. The investigation continues.
