Three Doniphan Co teens injured in MO rollover wreck

(KNZA)--Three Doniphan County, Kansas teens were injured early Thursday evening in a Buchanan County, Missouri rollover wreck.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the wreck occurred on Northwest Airport Road, about five miles west of St. Joseph, around 5:45.

The Patrol reports 18-year-old Calvin Guenther, of Wathena, was southbound when he lost control of his 1990 Cadillac Seville, which traveled off the side of the roadway. The vehicle returned to the roadway and began skidding, before going off side of the roadway again and striking a traffic sign. The car then struck an embankment and overturned onto its wheels.

Guenther and his two passengers, 18-year-old Sophie Juhl, of Wathena, and a 14-year-old Elwood boy, whose name was not released because of his age, were transported by Buchanan County EMS to Mosaic Life Care, in St. Joseph, for treatment of their injuries. The Patrol says Guenther and the 14-year-old boy suffered suspected serious injuries, while Juhl suffered suspected moderate injuries.

The report says Guenther and Juhl were not bucked up when the wreck occurred.
