EDITOR'S NOTE: The day of the accident has been corrected.

A 2-month-old girl and her 28-year-old mother, both of Patton, Mo., were taken to a hospital late Tuesday morning after they were involved in a one-vehicle rollover accident. The driver of this Chevrolet pickup, John Johnson, said that he was driving west on William Street (Route K) when a driver pulled out of Walmart and started to skid on the wet pavement, which caused him to swerve, he said. Johnson, 50, said he didn't think his girlfriend or his daughter were injured, but the experience shook him. "It was scary," he said.
