Two Farmington residents were moderately injured in a Thursday afternoon accident on US-67 in Jefferson County, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report.

Mark C. Madison-Lewis, 23, was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Trailblazer southbound on US-67 at Route CC when he made a left turn on a green light. A 2016 Kia Sorrento being driven south by Marc A. McWhorter, 25, of Bonne Terre, ran the red light and struck the front right side of the Trailblazer.

Madison-Lewis and passenger Kaitlin N. Politte, 24, who were both reportedly wearing seat belts, were transported by Joachim-Plattin Ambulance District to Mercy Hospital Jefferson. McWhorter was not injured.

The damage listed to both vehicles was extensive.

In an unrelated accident, a Potosi woman was seriously injured in a one-vehicle accident on Wednesday afternoon on MO-21 in Jefferson County, a highway patrol report said.

A 2003 Chevrolet Silverado was being driven northbound on MO-21 north of Britton Road by Shawn Stark, 48, of Potosi, when he applied the brakes, lost control, and the truck started sliding. The truck crossed the center of the road and traveled off the left side of the roadway. The left tires struck the edge of the roadway and the truck overturned.

Passenger Susan Kratky, 65, who reportedly wasn't wearing a seat belt was transported to Mercy Hospital South by Valle Ambulance District. Stark, who also reportedly wasn't wearing a seat belt, wasn't injured.

The damage to the truck was listed as total.
