Three persons were injured during a 5:15 a.m. accident Monday at Elk Creek.

A Summersville teen received minor injuries Saturday morning in a Howell County crash, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

Tpr. D.J. Johnson of the patrol said a southbound 1999 Ford driven by Linda L. Freshour, 57, of Summersville, slowed to avoid debris on Highway 17 just north of U.S. 60. A 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by Sharon K. Patton, 44, of Summersville, struck it in the rear.

A passenger in the Patton vehicle, Marisa K. Patton, 17, was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Mountain View.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, said Johnson.
