A Licking man was seriously injured in a single-vehicle accident Monday afternoon in Phelps County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Rodney A. Trolinger, 50, was flown from the scene by Phelps Air to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis. The accident was six miles south of Rolla on Highway O.

Trolinger was traveling southbound, the patrol said, when the 1993 Ford F150 he was driving traveled off the left side of the roadway and struck a utility box and tree. Trolinger was not wearing a seat belt.

The vehicle was totaled.
