LIVINGSTON COUNTY— A Missouri teen was injured in an accident just before 8p.m. Thursday in Livingston County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported a 2016 Chrysler passenger vehicle driven by Taylor D. Odell, 26, Chula, was eastbound on Route K one mile east of Chula.

The vehicle struck a 1997 Honda 4-wheel ATV driven by a 17-year-old boy from Chula that had slowed to make a left turn on Livingston Co. Road 251.

According to the MSHP, the ATV driver gave a hand signal ahead of the attempted turn and the Chrysler tried to pass on the left. The impact ejected the teen from the ATV.
