A two-vehicle accident on Tanner Bridge Road just east of Carol Lee Lane in Cole County sends one person to the emergency room.
The highway patrol says it happened just before 5:00 Friday afternoon when the vehicle driven by 63-year-old Michael Bernskoetter of Jefferson City crossed over the center striking a sideview mirror of the vehicle driven by 31-year-old Bradley Armstrong, also from Jeff City.
Bernskoetter’s vehicle continued on leaving the roadway before striking a guardrail, going airborne, striking the ground, overturning and then striking a fence.
Armstrong was uninjured while Bernskoetter escaped with moderate injuries and was treated at a nearby hospital.
Bernskoetter also was not wearing a seat belt.
