3 St. Joseph residents injured in a deer-related crash

(KNZA)--Three St. Joseph, Missouri residents were injured early Sunday morning in a deer-related northwest Missouri crash.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the crash occurred on Route D in Andrew County, about six miles north of St. Joseph, around 1:45.

The Patrol reports 26-year-old Thomas Simonson was southbound when he attempted to avoid a deer. His car crossed the center line and he overcorrected. The vehicle traveled off the west side of the roadway and overturned.

Simonson and his two passengers, 34-year-old Brittany Cunningham and a three-year-old girl, were transported by ambulance to Mosaic Life Care, in St. Joseph, for the treatment of suspected serious injuries.

The Patrol says Simonson was the only occupant not wearing a seatbelt when the wreck occurred.
