Memphis Man Hurt in Crash Near Downing
A Memphis man suffered moderate injuries in a one-vehicle accident in Schuyler County at 2:40 a.m. on January 17th.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Jeffrey L. Adams, 28, was eastbound on Highway 136 four miles west of Downing when he lost control of the 2001 Hyundai he was driving. The vehicle crossed the center line and the driver overcorrected, causing the car to run off the south side of the roadway where it overturned several times before coming to rest on its top.
Adams was transported by Schuyler County Ambulance to Scotland County Memorial Hospital in Memphis.
The Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Schuyler County Sheriff’s Department and the Schuyler County Ambulance Service.
