Bright sunshine is a factor in a one-vehicle crash early Tuesday evening.

An SUV crash on Route C west of LaGrange at 6:55 Tuesday evening results in minor injuries for a LaGrange teen. The Missouri Highway Patrol says an SUV driven by 16-year-old Catherine Smith went off the road and hit an embankment. Troopers say Smith’s vision was obstructed by the glare of the sun. Smith was taken to Blessing Hospital for treatment.
