Teenager in serious condition after crash in Bootheel

A Holcomb teenager is in serious condition this morning after a car crash in the Bootheel.

Troopers say it happened around 6:30 last night on Highway 153 about a half mile east of Tallapoosa. Fifteen year old Arzley Martinez was in a car which ran off the road, hit a bridge and flipped.

A helicopter flew Martinez to a Cape Girardeau hospital with serious injuries. The driver and two other passengers in the car were taken to a Sikeston hospital with only some bumps and bruises.
