An accident in Lafayette County Friday morning serves as a reminder to watch out for farm machinery on the roadway.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports Perry Small, 47, of Richmond, was eastbound on Route FF when he came upon a westbound International Tractor driven by Nicholas Jensen, 26, of Higginsville. Both drivers reportedly failed to maintain their respective lanes, side-swiping each other. Small then lost control of his Ford Pick-up which overturned before coming to rest.

Both occupants suffered moderate injuries. Small was taken to Lafayette Regional Hospital while his passenger, Jeremiah Crawford, 27, also of Richmond, was transported to Centerpoint Medical Center. Jensen was not injured.
