Two teens injured in crash

Two Potosi men were injured in a crash that occurred at 4:45 a.m. Wednesday on Highway 185 at Jeff City Road in Washington County.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the accident took place when a 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by Aaron S. Branham, 37, of Potosi, was traveling northbound on Highway 185. An eastbound 2014 Chevrolet Silverado driven by John R. Arnold, 52, of Potosi, attempting to cross Highway 185 from a private drive, failed to yield to Branham's vehicle and crossed into its path. The front of the Cavalier struck the passenger side of the Silverado.

Branham and Arnold were transported by Washington County Ambulance to Washington County Memorial Hospital. Branham had minor injuries and Arnold had moderate.

Both were reportedly wearing seat belts when the accident occurred.
