On Friday, Jan. 18, El Dorado Springs police officers responded to a reported one-vehicle injury accident at the intersection of South Park and East Fields Streets.

The police reported that this accident apparently occurred when a 2001 Nissan Frontier pick-up-truck, driven by James A. Rogers, 18, of El Dorado Springs, was traveling northbound on South Park St., drove off the right side of the roadway, went airborne and struck a tree. The Nissan truck came to final rest in an eastbound direction.

Rogers was transported to the local airport by Cedar County Ambulance and was flown to Mercy Hospital in Springfield for treatment of his injuries.
