A Potosi woman was injured in an SUV accident that occurred at 6:18 p.m. Tuesday on Route AA, located a mile west of Pleasant Hill Road in Washington County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that the wreck took place when an eastbound 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Bethany E. Boyer, 26, of Potosi, traveled off the right side of the roadway. When Boyer overcorrected, the Jeep traveled off the right side of the road a second time and overturned.

Boyer, who was reportedly not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, was transported by Air Evac to Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis where she was treated for serious injuries.

The vehicle was totaled.
