Granger Man Hurt in ATV Crash
A Granger man sustained serious injuries in an ATV accident on Monday in rural Scotland County. The crash occurred at 2:05 p.m. approximately 1.5 miles north of Granger.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Gary L. Holt, 58, was eastbound on a county road on a Kawasaki ATV when he failed to yield at an intersection, pulling into the path of a southbound 1997 Buick driven by Sherry D. Stone, 34, of Memphis.
The impact of the collision ejected Holt from the ATV. He suffered serious injuries and was flown from the scene by the Air Evac air ambulance to Blessing hospital in Quincy, IL.
Stone was not injured in the accident.
The Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Scotland County Sheriff's Office, Scotland County Ambulance and Scotland County first responders.
