A Hartshorn man was injured Thursday afternoon in a three-vehicle wreck involving two tractor trailers in Howell County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Brent O. Darnell, 51, was taken by private vehicle to Mercy St. Francis Hospital following the 1:54 p.m. accident on Highway 17. He had moderate injuries.

The patrol said the wreck occurred as a northbound 1994 Peterbuilt drive by Larry W. Martin, 67, of Summersville, and southbound 2000 International driven by Lyle S. Cooley, 53, of Willow Springs, struck mirrors. Cooley’s vehicle lost its cargo and struck the southbound 2008 GMC Sierra drive by Darnell.

Martin and Cooley were uninjured. All three men involved were wearing seat belts.

The truck Darnell was driving was totaled. The tractor trailers had minor damage.
