At approximately 1:30 p.m. Saturday, July 22, a Sweet Springs driver was injured when the 2000 Ford Ranger he was driving crashed in Pettis County.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol report stated the crash occurred as the Ranger driven by Braden T. Butts, 18, of Sweet Springs was traveling on state Highway 127 when it ran off the right side of the road, overcorrected and went off the left side of the road. The vehicle reportedly vaulted a barbed wire fence, went a short distance through a field and struck a fence before driving through a bean field, striking the same fence and then backing over it.

Butts was reported wearing a safety device and sustained minor injuries. He was transported to Western Missouri Medical Center for treatment.
