A Mountain View teenager trying to outrun the Missouri State Highway Patrol crashed in southern Texas County on Wednesday night.
Daniel K. Woods, 16, was traveling southbound on Grassy Road about 2.1 miles south of Highway W near Arroll when he attempted to elude troopers who initiated a stop for a traffic violation.
Troopers said Woods lost control on a gravel road and struck a ditch. His 2000 Chevrolet was totaled.
Woods was released to a guardian and then transported by ambulance to a hospital with minor injuries.
