A Bucyrus man was injured Friday morning when his vehicle struck a utility trailer four miles west of Houston, the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Tpr. Justice Simpson said a 1998 Ford Taurus driven southbound by Steven E. Breedlove, 62, later ran off the right side of the road and struck a tree.
Breedlove, who was wearing a seatbelt, was taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital with moderate injuries.
The vehicle had extensive damage, Simpson said.
