A 16-year-old from Hillsboro was injured Friday afternoon (Nov. 20) in a one-car accident on Hillsboro Victoria Road north of Victoria Cemetery Road northeast of De Soto, the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported.
At 3:25 p.m., the teen was driving a southbound 2009 Honda Civic, and he lost control of the car, which overturned, ran off the road and struck a guardrail and a tree, the report said.
The teen was moderately injured and taken by Valle Ambulance to Mercy Hospital South in south St. Louis County.
The teen was wearing a seat belt, the patrol reported.
The car was totaled, the report said.
The patrol did not name the teen because he is a juvenile.
