A Hale, Missouri man was injured Friday morning in a three-car accident on Route W at Village Marina Road. 

A Missouri State Highway Patrol report states that the incident occured when a northbound Chevrolet Silverado being driven by an unnamed 16-year-old minor from Eldon failed to stop at a stop sign. The Silverado pulled into the path of a southbound Ford LT8513 Dump Truck being driven by 43-year-old Jeremy Norris of Hale and collided, causing the dump truck to cross the center of the road and strike a northbound Toyota Prius driven by 70-year-old Karen Bunch of Eldon. The dump truck then overturned.

Norris was reported to have moderate injuries and was transported to Lake Regional Hospital by Lake Ozark Ambulance. The unnamed minor and Bunch were not reported to have any injuries and Bunch was the only individual reported to be wearing a safety device. 

The Silverado and Prius were listed as totaled and the dump truck had extensive damage. All three vehicles were towed from the scene.
