Bethany Man Injured in Accident Tuesday Evening

HARRISON COUNTY, MO – A Bethany man was taken to the hospital following an accident on I-35 Tuesday evening.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident took place just before 9 o’clock on Interstate 35, 7 miles south of Bethany. Seventy-two-year-old Larry Burton was northbound when his tractor-trailer ran off the roadway and hit an emergency crossover which sent the vehicle airborne.

The truck then traveled across both southbound lanes and went off the roadway where it struck a ditch and came to rest.

Burton was taken to Harrison County Community Hospital with moderate injuries.
