ST. FRANCOIS COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - Authorities investigate a Saturday evening rollover car crash in St. Francois County.
It happened just before 8:30pm Saturday on U.S. 67 about a mile and a half north of Cash Lane.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 46-year-old Brent O'Neil of Piedmont was driving a smaller model Mazda pick-up truck south on 67.
Troopers say O'Neil drove off the right side of the road, hitting a guard rail.
He then returned to the roadway and skidded across the road and into the median. That's when the truck overturned and hit a cable barrier. O'Neil was ejected from the vehicle.
O'Neil was airlifted to a St. Louis County hospital with serious injuries.
His passenger, 23-year-old Jesse Stanley, of St. Louis sustained moderate injuries.
