Purdy youth hospitalized after vehicle overturns

Three Purdy children were injured in a wreck Saturday on Highway F, two miles west of Highway 112.

According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Elizabeth Mitchell, 30, of Purdy, was driving a 1998 Ford Expedition westbound on Highway F at about 10:37 p.m. when her vehicle stalled, causing it to slide off the right side of the roadway and overturn.

Mitchell was not injured in the wreck. Kira Hess, 7, William Hess, 11, and Gabriel, Quiquivix, 6, all of Purdy, each suffered moderate injuries and were transported to Cox South Hospital in Springfield.

All four involved were wearing safety devices. The Expedition suffered extensive damage.
