Rollover Accident

The Highway Patrol reports a rollover accident Tuesday afternoon in rural Gentry County which injured one person from Maryville.

Taken by private vehicle, with moderate injuries, to Mosaic Medical Center in Albany was 41-year-old Christopher Swinford. Swinford was a passenger in a truck driven by 30-year-old Justin Viets of Stanberry who wasn’t hurt.

The truck was southbound when it went off the east side of Route J. The driver overcorrected causing the truck to overturn and come to rest on its passenger side, blocking the driving lane.
