A De Soto man was seriously injured in a one-vehicle all-terrain vehicle accident late Saturday evening (May 1) west of Bloomsdale and east of Bonne Terre in Ste. Genevieve County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that Jerry Gault, 41, was riding a 2006 Can Am Outlander north on private property near Dam Drive at Lakeview Drive at 11:20 p.m. when he attempted to execute a stunt involving a sharp left turn and the ATV overturned, throwing Gault off of it.

He suffered serious injuries and was taken by Ste. Genevieve County Ambulance to Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Creve Coeur, the report said.

An update on his condition was not available.

Gault was not wearing a safety helmet, the report said. The damage to the ATV was minor, according to the report.
