Stover man hurt in Morgan
A Stover man sustained moderate injuries in a single-vehicle accident at 7:15 a.m. Thursday in Morgan County.
According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Timothy D. Becker, 53, was driving a motorcycle north on Ivy Bend Road, two-tenths of a mile from Web Loop Junction, when he swerved to avoid a deer in the road. His vehicle overturned onto its right side and slid across the road, ejecting Becker. The motorcycle then traveled off the left side of the road, struck a ditch and went airborne before coming to rest in a ditch.
Becker, who was wearing a helmet, was taken by private vehicle to Lake Regional Health System in Osage Beach 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.
