According to online records from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, troopers responded to several area accidents, including a man being seriously injured after his vehicle rolled over him. Records also show several area residents were arrested by troopers.
At about 10:10 p.m., on Sept. 27, Jennifer J. Simons, 48, Chillicothe, was driving a 2005 PT Cruiser westbound on Highway 36 at Mooresville when the right wheels edged off of the roadway and into the median. Simmons then overcorrected and the vehicle went back across the highway and off the north side, struck an embankment and overturned once before the vehicle came to rest on its wheels. Simmons was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the patrol’s report. She received minor injuries and was taken to Hedrick Medical Center by ambulance for treatment.
