A Lathrop man suffered injuries in an ATV accident Saturday afternoon in Clinton County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports the accident occurred around 3:35 Saturday afternoon around Northeast Gall Road, three miles southeast of Turney, as 70-year-old David W. Blackman drove a 1998 Artic Cat westbound.

Troopers say Blackman attempted to make a left turn in a field, lost control, and overturned.

Blackman suffered serious injuries and sought treatment at Truman Medical Center in Kansas City.

Authorities say Blackman did not wear safety gear at the time of the crash.
