The Missouri Highway Patrol works a one vehicle accident in Taney County Tuesday morning that injures a person from Rockaway Beach.

The accident happened around 8:25 on Highway H five miles north of Forsyth after 33-year-old Misti Chitwood lost control of her SUV running off the right side of the road, then over-correcting and going off the left side of the road and striking a tree.

Chitwood sustained moderate injuries that were treated at Cox South Hospital in Springfield.
