Two Houston residents were injured Wednesday night when they were ejected from a vehicle on Brushy Creek Road.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said Lane A. Haley, 16, had moderate injuries and George J. Wink, 23, had minor injuries from the 7:51 p.m. single-vehicle accident one mile east of Houston. Neither were wearing seat belts.

Wink was traveling westbound, the patrol said, when the vehicle traveled off the right side of the roadway, struck an embankment and overturned. Both Wink and Haley were ejected.

Haley was taken by ambulance to Texas County Memorial Hospital. Wink was seeking his own medical treatment.

The 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse that Wink was driving was totaled, the patrol said.
