A Chula teen was seriously injured in an accident in Livingston County last night.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports the 17-year old male was riding a 4 wheeler on Route K, 1 mile west of Chula around 7:45 Thursday evening when he attempted to make a left hand turn as a vehicle was attempting to pass him. Troopers say the teen was ejected when he was struck by the passing vehicle, driven by 26-year old Taylor Odell of Chula.
The teen came to rest on the north side of the roadway. Odell’s vehicle went off the side of the roadway as well.
The atv driver was transported by Life Flight to Truman Medical Center with serious injuries.
