ADAIR COUNTY, Mo. — A Kirksville teen was hospitalized after he was ejected during a one vehicle crash in Adair County Tuesday evening.

The Missouri Highway Patrol was sent to Highway H, a mile south of Kirksville around 6:00 p.m. Tuesday.

A preliminary investigation found that a vehicle traveled off northbound Highway H before striking a ditch and going airborne, ejecting a passenger when it hit the ground.

The driver, 18-year-old Kody Christman sought medical attention on his own for minor injuries. The passenger, 17-year-old Andrew Head was flown to University Hospital with moderate injuries.

The report says neither occupant was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
