A man from Licking was injured Saturday morning when his vehicle ran off Highway C to avoid another vehicle and overturned, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.
Tpr. J.R. Sellars said the northbound 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee was driven by Wayne H. Edwards, 41. He was taken by ambulance with moderate injuries to Texas County Memorial Hospital in Houston. Sellars said he was not wearing a seat belt in the crash that was about three miles north of Licking.
The vehicle had moderate damage.
It was the second injury-related accident in the county since the Thanksgiving traffic period began.
