A Lawson man was injured in a Saturday morning golf cart accident in Pettis County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on Maple Street, at Clarendon Road, when a golf cart was making a left turn out a private parking lot onto eastbound Maple Street.

Troopers say 60-year-old Samuel E. Owen was not secured in the bed of the vehicle and was ejected.

Owen was taken to the University of Missouri Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.

Troopers say the golf cart left the scene of the crash and it is unknown who was driving.
