At around 7:30 p.m., a Yamaha Grisley ATV, driven by Adam Mast, 35, of Durham, Missouri, lost control and overturned. The incident led to the ejection of both the driver and his passenger, Diana Mast, 47.

Diana Mast suffered serious injuries in the crash and was transported by air to University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri.
