PERRYVILLE, Mo. -- A 71-year-old Perryville man remained hospitalized in serious condition Sunday night after he was involved in a rollover accident the night before, according to authorities.
Joseph D. Hudson was driving his 2001 Lincoln Grand Marquis north on Route T at about 9:15 p.m. when it veered off the road, struck a mailbox and overturned, preliminary crash reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.
Hudson was taken to a Cape Girardeau hospital by helicopter.
The accident took place north of Perry County Road 702. Hudson was wearing his seat belt, the patrol said. A Saint Francis Medical Center operator confirmed that Hudson's condition was unchanged late Sunday.
