A pair of accidents last week in the Seymour area left four people injured, two in each wreck.

The first occurred early last Sunday, March 15, on U.S. 60, two miles east of Seymour.

At 4:25 a.m., a one-vehicle accident involved an eastbound 2008 Dodge Avenger car driven by Miranda J. Cantrell, 22, of Mansfield.

Cpl. D.J. Johnson of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Cantrell’s car “traveled off the left side of the roadway, struck the ground and overturned.”

Minor injuries were sustained by Cantrell and a female juvenile passenger, age 16, from Mountain Grove.

Both were taken by ambulance to Springfield hospitals.

Cantrell was taken to Mercy Hospital in Springfield, while the juvenile was taken to Cox Medical Center South in Springfield.

Neither was wearing a seatbelt, the patrol report said.

Last Thursday morning, a three-vehicle accident occurred at the intersection of U.S. 60 and Highway C at the city’s northeast edge.

Cpl. E.L. Mueller of the patrol said the 8:30 a.m. wreck involved three westbound vehicles.

Dewayne B. Callahan, 89, of West Plains was westbound in a 1992 Buick LeSabre car.

Mueller report said two westbound vehicles — a 2013 Ford Explorer and a 2013 Chevrolet Impala — were slowing for vehicles ahead at the intersection’s stoplight when Callahan’s car “collided with (the Explorer), forcing it into the Impala.”

Callahan and his 90-year-old wife, Shirley Callahan, each sustained minor injuries and were taken to Mercy Hospital in Springfield by ambulance.

Both were wearing their seatbelts, Mueller’s report concluded.
