Sweet Springs man hurt in 1-vehicle crash Friday

Sunday, December 9, 2012

A Sweet Springs man suffered minor injuries Friday, Dec. 7, in a one-vehicle traffic accident in Pettis County, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

John E. Smith, 21, declined medical treatment at the scene, troopers said.

The crash occurred about noon as Smith was traveling southbound in a 2001 Nissan on U.S. Highway 65 one-half mile north of Route D.

The car went off the right side of the road, and Smith apparently overcorrected. The car went off the left side of the roadway, then slid off the right side, struck an embankment and overturned, according to the report.

Smith was wearing a safety device, troopers said.
