Overturned cars injure two

Two cars overturned in separate accidents Sunday in St. Francois County, causing moderate injuries to a Desloge man and an Ironton woman.

According to Missouri Highway Patrol reports, Cheryl E. Aubuchon, 40, of Ironton, was northbound on Highway 221 at 12:05 a.m. when the passenger side wheels of her 2005 Pontiac Sunfire went off the road, one mile south of Walnut Street. Aubuchon overcorrected, which sent the Sunfire off the left side of the road, where it overturned. Aubuchon, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken by ambulance to Mineral Area Regional Medical Center. Damage to the Sunfire was listed as total.

Also according to reports, David W. Martin, 28, of Desloge, was northbound on U.S. 67 at 8:42 a.m. when his 1996 Mercury Village went off the right side of the road, 300 feet south of Stormy Lane. Martin overcorrected and swerved to the left side of the road. The Villager then skidded across the centerline and went off the left side of the road, struck an embankment and overturned.

Martin, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken by ambulance to Parkland Health Center. Damage to the vehicle was reported as total
