KC man seriously injured
A Kansas City man sustained serious injuries in a single-vehicle accident at 6:25 p.m. Thursday in Benton County.
According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Anthony D. Leonard, 40, was driving north on state Route 7, four-tenths of a mile north of state Route DD, when he swerved to avoid striking a vehicle making a left turn into a private drive.
Leonard’s vehicle then traveled off the right side of the road and he over-corrected. As the vehicle returned to the roadway, it began to skid and overturned multiple times, traveling off the left side of the road and ejecting Leonard.
Leonard, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken by Life Flight to University Hospital in Columbia for his injuries.
Information is taken from preliminary Missouri State Highway Patrol and Sedalia Police Department reports, which do not necessarily contain statements from all parties involved.
