A Mountain View teen was injured last Wednesday morning when he lost control of his vehicle on a township road and struck a tree.
Tpr. Marty Wiseman of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said Bret C. Racicot, 16, was operating an eastbound 1986 Toyota 4Runner that went off the gravel road on Spring Valley Road about two miles west of Summersville.
Racicot was flown with moderate injuries to St. John’s in Springfield. The vehicle was totaled. It was not known if the boy was wearing a seat belt, Wiseman said.
