Atchison County Accident

A Tarkio man was injured in a one-vehicle accident on U-S Highway 136, 3 miles east of Rock Port late yesterday afternoon.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says 63-year-old Danny E. Houston was taken by Atchison-Holt Ambulance to Community Hospital Fairfax with serious injuries. Authorities say Houston's eastbound vehicle went off the right side of the roadway, then returned to the roadway before leaving the left side. The vehicle then struck an embankment before overturning numerous times and coming to rest on its wheels facing west. Houston was not wearing a seatbelt.
