Teen injured after pickup truck runs off road, overturns

A Gainesville teen was injured Saturday morning in a one-vehicle accident in Ozark County. Nineteen-year-old Austin Richardson was transported by air ambulance to Cox Medical Center South in Springfield with what were described as serious injuries.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Richardson was traveling on U.S. Highway 160 nearly 8 miles east of Gainesville when his pickup truck crossed the center line. He overcorrected, and his truck traveled off the right side of the roadway, struck an embankment and overturned.

Richardson’s truck was totaled in the 11:40 a.m. accident.
