A Sedalia woman was injured in a single-vehicle accident at 5:35 p.m. Friday in Pettis County.
According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Heather N. Reyes, 27, was driving north on state Route M, north of state Route V, when she swerved to avoid striking a deer, which caused her vehicle to travel off the right side of the road and strike a ditch. The vehicle continued traveling north through the ditch until it struck a barbed-wire fence with its front passenger side.
Reyes, who was wearing a seat belt, was taken by Pettis County Ambulance District to Bothwell Regional Health Center with minor 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.
