Two people were injured in a one-vehicle crash that occurred Tuesday afternoon in Pettis County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a northbound 1999 Lincoln Continental, driven by 33-year-old John G. Fizer of Smithton, was on Route M at Echo Road around 1:30 p.m., when the driver failed to negotiate a curve, and the vehicle traveled off the left side of the roadway and impacted a ditch. The Lincoln then spun around in the roadway before overturning, ejecting both passengers.

Injured were 53-year-old Larry D. Craig of Cole Camp, and 34-year-old Brooke A. Adams of Sedalia. None were wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, according to the report.
