The information from this story was provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol's online traffic crash reports.

Two persons were injured early Tuesday in a crash on Mineral Drive about two miles north of Houston.

Tpr. Jacob Sellars said a northbound 2000 Ford F-150 truck failed to negotiate a curve at 1:50 a.m., travelled off the right side of the roadway and struck a tree.

The driver, Brandon L. Carter, 34, of Bucyrus, had moderate injuries; and a passenger, Kyle Lee M. McCrackin, who had minor injuries, were taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital by ambulance.

The truck was totaled, and no one had seat belts on, Sellars said.
