Ice-covered roads contributed to an accident five miles south of Delta Wednesday. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a 2003 Ford driven by 50-year-old Jackie M. Frazier of Gibson, Mo., ran off the left side of the road, struck a utility pole and overturned on Highway 25 around 4:30 p.m.

Joseph A. Long, 35, of Campbell, Mo., a passenger in the car, was ejected during the accident. He was in serious condition.

Another passenger, Willie E. Sipes, 53, of Gibson, and Frazier received moderate injuries in the accident.
