David J. Vaught, 48, of Imperial was hurt Thursday evening (Oct. 17) in a two-vehicle accident on Hwy. 141 south of High View Drive in unincorporated Fenton, the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported.
At 7:30 p.m., Vaught was driving a 2017 Dodge Journey south on the highway and allegedly failed to see a 2007 Sterling dump truck ahead that was traveling slowly, and the front of the Journey struck the rear of the dump truck, the report said.
Michael E. Weaver, 28, of Summersville was driving the dump truck. No injuries were reported for him.
However, Vaught was moderately hurt and taken by Rock Township Ambulance to Mercy Hospital South in south St. Louis County, where he was listed in good condition Friday afternoon (Oct. 18), a hospital spokesman said.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts, the patrol reported.
The Journey was totaled, and the dump truck had minor damage, the report said.
