A Ridgeway teen was injured in a Tuesday crash in Harrison County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on Route A, a mile west of Ridgeway, when a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old male was heading eastbound.

Troopers say the teen ran off the north side of the road, struck the bottom of a steep embankment, and came to a rest in a field.

He was taken to Harrison County Community Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Troopers say the teen was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
