Three Slater residents were hurt, while the driver escaped uninjured, in a one-vehicle crash early Sunday, March 20, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.
Matthew D. Campbell, 29, and Katie E. Lee, 31, suffered moderate injuries, and Candice M. Campbell, 23, suffered minor injuries in the crash, troopers said.
Each sought treatment on their own, according to the report. None of the injured were wearing a safety device, troopers said.
The driver of the 2006 Dodge was wearing a safety device. Cory J. Sanders, 28, was driving westbound on state Highway 240 about 1 miles east of Route P when the vehicle went off the left side of the roadway and struck a sign.
The vehicle continued west and struck a ditch, coming to rest in a field, troopers said.
The crash was not reported until eight hours after it occurred, according to the report. The investigation continues.
