PIKE COUNTY, Mo. -- A Clarksville teenager was injured at 7:40 a.m. Tuesday in a one-car accident on Route D, two-tenths of a mile south of Route N in Pike County.

James A. Somers, 15, was taken by Pike County Ambulance to St. Joseph's West Hospital in St. Louis for treatment.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported Somers was a passenger in a 1999 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Daniel A. Somers, 17, also of Clarksville. The southbound Malibu traveled off the left side of the road, struck a creek embankment, overturned and came to rest on its wheels. James Somers was not wearing a seat belt, police said.
