A Sedalia woman suffered serious injuries in a one-vehicle crash Saturday afternoon in Saline County, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

Verna M. Dixon, 70, was taken by air ambulance to University Hospital in Columbia.

The crash occurred about 3:50 p.m. as Dixon was driving southbound on U.S. 65 Highway near the intersection with 110th Road, according to the report.

The 2005 Toyota Dixon was driving went off the left side of the road, struck a culvert and a road sign, overturned and came to rest in the median, troopers said.

Dixon apparently was not wearing a safety device, according to the report.
