A motorcycle accident in Miller County late last night sent an Eldon man to the hospital. According to the Highway Patrol, 51-year-old Virgil Cooper was driving westbound on Route 54 near AA when his Harley ran off the right side of the road, struck a ditch and overturned. He was taken to St. Marys Hospital with minor injuries.
The Highway Patrol says 19-year-old Tyler Lucas of Dixon was driving too fast for conditions when he failed to negotiate a curve and ran off the roadway, crashing into a tree, on Adler Springs Road at Route TT early this morning. Lucas refused medical treatment.
