Four Leeton Residents Injured
Four Leeton residents, including three juveniles, were injured after their vehicle struck a deer Sunday afternoon in Johnson County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a southbound 2008 Dodge Caravan driven by 29-year-old Cinthia M. Johnson of Leeton, was on Route F, southwest of 475th Road at 3:37 p.m., when the vehicle slowed down, struck a deer. The Dodge then crossed the center line, then back to the right side of the roadway and came to rest in the southbound lane.
Johnson, as well as three juveniles, a 12-year-old male, a 9-year-old male and a male infant, suffered minor injuries, and were transported by JCAD to Western Missouri Medical Center for treatment. All were wearing their seat belt at the time of the incident.
The Caravan had minor damage.
