Trenton Teen Seriously Injured in Grundy County Accident

A Trenton teenager was seriously injured in a Grundy County incident Sunday evening.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says an accident occurred on 28th and Princeton Road, inside the city of Trenton, when a pickup truck driven by 17-year-old Alan M. Airey was heading westbound.

Troopers say a 16-year-old male passenger climbed out of the passenger side window in an attempt to climb into the bed of the pickup truck.

The teen lost his footing, fell out of the window, and onto the roadway.

The 16-year-old was taken by Life Flight to Children’s Mercy for treatment.

No injuries were reported to Airey and no damage was done to the truck.
