A one-vehicle accident shortly before 1:00 Tuesday morning on Midway Road north of South Outer Road-54 in Miller County sends two Tuscumbia residents to the emergency room.
The highway patrol report says it happened when 50-year-old Lester Boyer failed to negotiate a curve sending the pickup truck off the roadway before striking the ground and a rock, then coming to rest on its side.
Neither Boyer or his 16-year-old passenger were wearing a seat belt and suffered serious injuries.
They were both taken to Lake Regional Hospital.
Boyer also faces pending charges of DWI involving serious physical injury, DWI with a person under the age of 17 in the vehicle and other driving-related offenses.
