Weather is a Factor in Three NE Missouri Crashes
Slick roads are a factor in three vehicle crashes in northeast Missouri Monday.
A truck crash along US 61 at Pike County Route U Monday afternoon results in minor injuries for the driver. The Missouri Highway Patrol says a pickup driven by 35-year-old Anthony Sinopole of Foley was traveling too fast for conditions when it went off the road and hit a tree at 3:30 p.m. Troopers say Sinopole sustained minor injuries and was taken to Pike County Memorial Hospital for treatment.
A Hannibal man is recovering from minor injuries after his truck slid into the median on US 61 at 7:19 Monday morning. The Missouri Highway Patrol says 29-year-old Jonathan Lewis was northbound when he lost control of his pickup truck. The vehicle hit a guardrail and went into the median a mile north of New London. Lewis was taken by private vehicle to Hannibal Regional Hospital for treatment.
A pickup truck crash on Marion County Road 424 south of Palmyra at 3:45 Monday afternoon results in minor injuries for two Palmyra residents. The Missouri Highway Patrol says a pickup driven by 16-year-old James McLeod of Palmyra skidded out of control on the gravel road, went off the road and hit a utility pole. McLeod escaped injury. Two passengers, 19-year-old Catherine Bell and 14-year-old Maddilyn Mack were taken to Hannibal Regional Hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The crash report indicates that none of the three were wearing seat belts.
