Amazonia Teen Injured in Sunday Morning Crash

An Amazonia teen suffered injuries in an Andrew County crash Sunday morning.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports the accident occurred around 10:25 Sunday morning on County Road 401, five miles northwest of Amazonia, as a 16-year-old Amazonia male drove northbound.

Troopers say the teen lost control, went off the west side of the road, struck a tree, struck a second tree, and came to a rest.

The teen suffered minor injuries and sought treatment at Mosaic Life Care.

Authorities say the teen did wear a seat belt at the time of the crash.
