Three people were injured in a one-vehicle accident that occurred Saturday afternoon in Pettis County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a northbound 2003 Acura TLX, driven by 30-year-old Tiffany N. Moore of Sedalia, was on Route M, north of Route KK at 4:48 p.m., when the driver attempted to avoid an object in the roadway, causing the vehicle to travel off the right side of the road, sliding in the wet grass. The vehicle struck a bridge and continued skidding north. The vehicle then struck a tree and came to rest facing east.

Injured were 53-year-old Carl N. McCallum of Sedalia, a 16-year-old male from Sedalia, and a one-year-old male from Sedalia. All suffered minor injuries, and all were transported to Bothwell Regional Health Center by PCAD.

The Acura had moderate damage and was towed by State Fair Towing.
