A Seligman man suffered moderate injuries in a motorcycle wreck on Highway 112, one mile south of Roaring River, and the driver of the bike was arrested following the wreck.

According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Tommy Canada, 30, address unknown, was driving a 2015 Honda Reckus southbound on Highway 112 at 9:20 p.m. Tuesday when his vehicle drove off the left side of the roadway and overturned, ejecting the passenger.

Canada was not injured. The passenger, Patric Smith, 22, of Seligman, suffered moderate injuries and was transported by ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Cassville. Neither of the men were wearing safety devices.

Canada was arrested Wednesday at 5:55 p.m. for leaving the scene of a motor vehicle crash with injury to another, and driving while revoked.

Barry County Prosecutor Amy Boxx has officially charged Canada with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident, a class D felony, driving while revoked, a class D felony, and careless and imprudent driving involving an accident, a class A misdemeanor.

He is being held in the Barry County jail on a $4,900 bond.
