St. Louis woman hurt in crash near Arrow Rock Saturday

Saturday, December 29, 2012

A St. Louis woman suffered moderate injuries in a one-vehicle traffic accident on state Highway 41 near Arrow Rock Saturday, Dec. 29, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

Sharon M. Strassburger, 65, was taken by Saline County Ambulance to Cooper County Memorial Hospital for treatment.

The crash occurred shortly after 11 a.m. as Strassburger was traveling northbound in a 2009 Toyota.

She apparently lost control, and the car went off the right side of the road, troopers said. It returned to the roadway then went off the right side again, striking an embankment, a fence and a sign before coming to rest facing west.

Strassburger was wearing a safety device, according to the report.

Arrow Rock Community Fire Department first responders assisted at the scene.
