A pair of automobile accidents in the Seymour area last week left four people with injuries, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
First to occur was a one-vehicle accident on Highway A, about four miles north of Diggins.
Cpl. T.V. Mosley of the patrol said that at 10:21 a.m. on Monday, June 21, Seymour’s Bradley D. Sanders, 54, was southbound in a 2009 Honda CRV when he “traveled off the right side of the roadway and struck a fence.”
Sanders sustained minor injuries in the wreck and was taken by ambulance to Cox Medical Center South in Springfield, Mosley said.
He was wearing a seatbelt.
His vehicle was towed from the accident scene by Yates Boys Towing of Seymour.
The next day, which was Tuesday, June 22, a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 60 in Seymour left three with injuries.
Trooper Austin M. James of the patrol said the 7:35 p.m. accident occurred when a northbound 2018 Ford F-150 truck driven by 23-year-old Jerry S. McBride, Seymour, “attempted to cross (U.S. 60) and failed to yield to” a westbound 2004 Toyota Sienna driven by Vera J. Myers, 71, also of Seymour.
Myers then struck McBride, James’ report said.
Myers sustained what the patrol described as serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to Cox Medical Center South in Springfield.
Also taken to Cox South were McBride and a passenger in Myers’ vehicle, 54-year-old Debra L. Blankenship, Seymour.
Both had moderate injuries, the patrol said.
McBride and Myers weren’t wearing seatbelts, James said in his report, adding that Blankenship was wearing hers.
Both vehicles were towed from the accident scene by Yates Boys Towing of Seymour.
