A Versailles man remains in the ICU following a one-car accident during the early morning hours on Thursday. Morgan County Sheriff Norman Dills says the accident happened on McCasland Road near Highway-J when the car traveled off the bridge and started to submerge into the creek under the bridge. Deputies entered the water and removed the unconscious driver who was trapped and suffering from multiple lacerations. Life saving first aid was administered by the deputies until medical personnel arrived. The driver of the vehicle was identified by the highway patrol as 22-year-old Johnathon Roach. He was flown to University Hospital. A second subject in the car, 21-year-old Kody Frehse of Camdenton, was treated for moderate injuries at Lake Regional. Neither one was, reportedly, wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
