A Kirksville resident was hurt Saturday evening when a car went off a road and hit a fence west of Kirksville.

Thirty-six-year-old Ann Stafford was taken by private vehicle to Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville with minor injuries.

Stafford was a passenger in a car driven by 32-year-old Dustin Shelton of Kirksville who was not reported as receiving any injuries.

The accident happened on Michigan Trail approximately one-half mile west of Kirksville as the westbound car went off the left side of the road striking a fence.

There was moderate damage to the vehicle and the patrol report indicated neither occupant was wearing a seat belt.
