Three from Milan hurt in Sunday crash

Seatbelt on road

The Highway Patrol reports three Milan residents sustained minor injuries when the driver of the sports utility vehicle in which they traveled lost control on the snow-covered road Sunday afternoon.

Thirty-two-year-old Gregoria Limon drove east on Missouri 6 when the vehicle ran off the right side of the road and struck a fence about two miles east Humphreys. The SUV received extensive damage.

A private vehicle transported passengers 13-year-old Daniel Peralez and 16-year-old Eduardo Romero to Sullivan County Memorial Hospital in Milan. The Patrol reports passenger 69-year-old Antonio Limon sought his own treatment, and the driver sustained no injuries.

The Patrol notes all occupants involved in the accident wore a seat belt, except Peralez.

The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Department and Ambulance, as well as the Milan First Responders, assisted at the scene.
