A Clinton woman was injured in a two-vehicle accident at 5:13 p.m. Saturday in Henry County.

According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Cody L. Wilkins, 19, of Deepwater, was driving west on state Route Z, one-tenth of a mile east of state Route NN, as he attempted to make a left turn into a private drive. Another westbound vehicle driven by James E. Dodson, 22, of Deepwater, failed to slow and swerved to the left, causing his vehicle to strike Wilkins’ vehicle.

A passenger in Dodson’s vehicle, Tasha M. Sharp, 20, was taken by Warsaw-Lincoln Ambulance District to Golden Valley Memorial Hospital in Clinton with minor injuries.

Reports indicate Dodson and Wilkins were wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident, but Sharp was not.

Information is taken from preliminary Missouri State Highway Patrol and Sedalia Police Department reports, which do not necessarily contain statements from all parties involved.
