East Prairie man treated for injuries

Friday, October 26, 2001

EAST PRAIRIE - Patricia Johnson, 46, of East Prairie was treated at Missouri Delta Medical Center in Sikeston Thursday for moderate injuries after striking a runaway trailer.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, at approximately 2:35 p.m. Johnson was northbound on County Road 413 four miles north of East Prairie in a 1989 Ford Aerostar van when she ran off the east side of the road attempting to avoid the 16-foot tandem axle trailer which had detached from the southbound 1991 GMC pickup driven by Martin Stallings, 39, of Charleston.

The trailer also left the road on the east side and was struck by the van.
