Three motor vehicle accidents in Cape Girardeau and Scott counties kept the Missouri State Highway Patrol busy Monday.

The first accident occurred around 10:15 a.m. on US 61 south of Benton, Mo. A 2007 Chevrolet truck driven by Daphne R Medley, 45, of Vanduser, Mo., ran off the right side of the roadway, struck a highway sign, hit a house and then overturned.

Medley was taken to St. Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau, where she was treated for moderate injuries.

Then, at 6:38 p.m. near Morley, Mo., a three-car accident on Route C sent five people to Saint Francis Medical Center. Around 6:38 p.m. a 1995 Pontiac driven by Matthew B Butler, 22, of Diehlstadt, Mo., crossed the center line of the roadway and struck a 1984 GMC farm truck driven by Rondal K Evans, 58, of East Prairie, Mo.

The Pontiac then hit head-on a 1999 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Ryan K Taylor, 26, of Morley.

Butler and Taylor were treated for serious injuries. Passengers in the Malibu also sustained injuries. Christina A Patrick, 24, of Morley, was treated for moderate injuries while a three-year-old and an infant from Morley sustained minor injuries.

Further north, two Cape Girardeau residents were treated for moderate injuries in an accident near Fruitland. Around 8:45 p.m. on US 61 a 2007 Buick driven by Jerry N Morton, 73, of Jackson failed to yield. The vehicle was then struck by a 1990 Ford driven by Jennifer A Huffman, 30, of Cape Girardeau. While Morton did not sustain any injuries, Huffman and her 13-year-old passenger were taken by ambulance to St. Francis Medical Center.
