A one-vehicle accident a mile east of Chaffee, Mo., sent two Ballwin, Mo., residents to Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the accident occurred just after midnight Thursday when a 2003 Toyota driven by Michael Halbrook, 33, swerved to avoid an unidentified oncoming vehicle on Frisco Road in Scott County. His car ran off the road and struck a tree. Halbrook and a passenger, Lauren Ober, 21, sustained moderate injuries.
