Area man injured in crash

A two-vehicle accident that took place at 3:07 p.m. Wednesday on southbound U.S. 67, south of Papin Road in Jefferson County, resulted in the injury of a Bonne Terre man.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the accident occurred when a 2000 Jeep Cherokee driven by Theresa Wilkinson, 49, of French Village stopped for traffic before making a right turn into the path of a 1993 Chevrolet S10 driven by 23-year-old Richard C. Stricker.

The front of the first vehicle struck the left rear of Stricker’s vehicle which then traveled off the right side of the roadway and overturned.

Stricker, who was reportedly not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, was transported by Valle Ambulance District to Mercy Hospital-Jefferson where he was treated for moderate injuries.
