A Marshall man suffered moderate injuries Monday, Nov. 22, in a one-vehicle crash in Cooper County, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

John C. Swisher, 59, was taken to Fitzgibbon Hospital in Marshall for treatment.

The crash occurred shortly after noon on Santa Fe Trail one mile north of old Highway 240.

Troopers said Swisher was traveling north on a 2005 Harley-Davidson and was apparently going too fast for conditions. The motorcycle went off the right side of the roadway and overturned.

Swisher was wearing a safety device, troopers said.
