Lawson Teen Injured in Gravel Road Crash Saturday

A Lawson teen was injured in a Ray County crash Saturday.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on Nike Base Road, north of West 180th Street, when a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old Lawson teen was heading southbound.

Troopers say the teen fishtailed on a gravel road, ran off the right side of the roadway, then off the left side of the roadway, striking a fence and several trees.

He was taken to Excelsior Springs Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Troopers say the teen was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
