Two Licking residents were injured Tuesday, June 25, in a crash on Highway O three miles south of Rolla.

Three Mountain Grove teens were injured Wednesday afternoon in a Texas County crash, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

Tpr. R.D. Crewse said a westbound 1998 Ford Expedition driven on Highway AM by Natasha J. Parsons, 16, went off the roadway and overturned.

Two 13-year-old passengers, Devon Bell and Michael A. Ortiz, were injured. Bell was transported by a family member with moderate injuries to a Mountain Grove clinic. Ortiz refused treatment. The driver was taken by ambulance to Texas County Memorial Hospital in minor injuries.

Crewse said Bell wasn’t wearing a seat belt; everyone else was using one.

The vehicle was totaled.
