On Thursday afternoon, August 25, two Fulton residents were injured in a single vehicle accident in north Jefferson City.

According to Jefferson City Police the accident happened at 4 p.m. in the 800 block of U.S.54/63. They said that a vehicle being driven by 24 year old Tyler Shirk was traveling southbound in the left lane when he fell asleep for a moment and ran off the left side of the roadway. He awoke and tried to get back onto the roadway but he over corrected and lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle then started to skid across the highway and went onto the exit ramp lane for Missouri 94. The vehicle then flipped over and ran off the roadway ending up on the grass on the south side of the exit ramp.

Both Tyler and his passenger,24 year old Patricia Shirk were taken to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries. Both were fortunately wearing seat belts and their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.
