A single-vehicle accident on Prairie Avenue, 4.11 miles south of Jamesport, resulted in serious injuries to two individuals and moderate injuries to another. The crash occurred at approximately 5:15 p.m. on May 29, 2024.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Jared J. Curtis, 31, of Gallatin, Missouri, was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Traverse westbound on Prairie Avenue when he lost control of the vehicle.
