LA BELLE, Mo. — An SUV slammed into a tree Friday afternoon right in the heart of a northeast Missouri community.
The crash happened at approximately 12:45 p.m. in La Belle, just north of the intersection of Highway 6 and Lewis County Route K.
State troopers said Michael Newberry, 72, of La Belle, was northbound on Route k when he blew through a four-way stop, crossed over Highway 6 and veered off the right side of the street.
The vehicle, which was pulling a flatbed trailer carrying a pickup truck, struck a fence, clipped a building and then ran straight into a tree.
Newberry, who was not buckled up, suffered moderate injuries.
He was taken by ambulance to Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Illinois.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
