Vehicle turning into private drive hits motorcycle

A Seligman man was injured on Tuesday in a wreck at 6:10 p.m. on Route F, one mile west of Roaring River State Park.

According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Rodney Ozbun, 19, of Eagle Rock, was driving a 2014 Nissan Altima eastbound and was on the wrong side of the road preparing to turn into a private drive when his vehicle struck the side of a 1996 Kawasaki motorcycle, being driven by Craig White, 50, of Seligman. The motorcycle overturned, and White was ejected.

White suffered serious injuries and was transported to Mercy Hospital in Rogers, Ark. Ozbun was not injured.

Both were wearing safety devices. The motorcycle was totaled, and the Altima sustained minor damage.
