HOLT COUNTY—A Missouri teen was injured in an accident just after 4:30p.m. Wednesday in Holt County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported a 2013 Dodge Avenger driven by a 16-year-old girl from Maitland was turning southbound onto MO 113 from Route A one half mile west of Maitland.

The Avenger struck a southbound 2009 Chevy Silverado driven by Eric S. Ottman, 20, Oregon, Mo., who had just crested a hill north of the intersection.
