A man from El Dorado Springs, Missouri was seriously injured in a crash on U.S. Highway 54, about 7 miles east of that city Friday afternoon.
The Missouri Highway Patrol says the accident occurred just before 3 p.m. Friday when a vehicle driven by 61-year-old Roger W. Hochstedler of Eldorado Springs failed to negotiate a curve.
His Ford Mustang traveled off the right side of the roadway, struck a utility pole and overturned. In the process, it struck a fence and a tree.
He had serious injuries and was transported to a hospital in Bolivar, Mo. for treatment.
