Watson Man Injured in Atchison County Crash Wednesday

A Watson man was injured in a Wednesday afternoon crash in Atchison County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident occurred on U.S. 275, about 10 miles north of Rock Port, when a vehicle driven by 36-year-old Justin G. Bodfield was heading northbound.

Troopers say Bodfield crossed the center line, went off the west side of the road, struck a tree, slid counterclockwise, and came to a rest.

He was taken to Saint Mary’s Hospital in Nebraska City, Nebraska for treatment of minor injuries.

Authorities say Bodfield was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
