Drivers injured in separate accidents
Two Southeast Missouri drivers were injured Tuesday in separate accidents, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
At 5:55 p.m., Michael Andrew, 33, of Perryville, Mo., suffered moderate injuries when his 1994 Ford failed to negotiate a 90-degree curve on Cape Girardeau County Road 530 a half mile north of Pocahontas. His car traveled off the left side of the road and hit a rock embankment.
Andrew was taken by ambulance to St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau. Summonses against him are pending, the patrol said.
At 6:30 p.m. on Cape Girardeau County Road 553 four miles northeast of Fruitland, a 1988 Ford Escort driven by Richard White, 20, of Jackson ran off the side of the road and overturned. White was taken by Air Evac to St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau with serious injuries. Summonses against him are also pending.
