An area woman sustained moderate injuries after an accident Monday in St. Francois County.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, Sunshine House, 43, of Park Hills, was driving a 2016 Ford Focus northbound on U.S. 67 Monday night.
The report states that at 10 p.m., House attempted to change lanes but failed to see an approaching vehicle and over-corrected to the right. The car then went off the right side of the highway and struck a rock embankment, which caused the car to become airborne.
The car then returned to the roadway, impacted the pavement, and overturned twice before coming to a rest in the roadway north of Stormy Lane.
House was moderately injured as a result of the crash and was transported to Parkland Health Center in Farmington by St. Francois County Ambulance. According to the report, House was not wearing a seat belt, and damage to the car was listed as “total.”
