16-year-old driver injured after car overturns on Highway NN

CEDAR HILL, MO – A 16-year-old male driver lost control of his 1998 Ford Crown Victoria and crashed on Highway NN north of Windy Ridge Road on Sunday afternoon.

Police report the teenager was driving southbound on Highway NN when he crossed over the double yellow lines in the center of the highway. He attempted to brake and over-corrected the vehicle, which caused the Ford to veer of the right side of the road. The driver over-corrected again and the Ford returned to the Highway before running off the left side, hitting a ditch, and overturning.

It is unclear what caused the driver to cross onto the wrong side of Highway NN in the first place. He was transported to Mercy Hospital South for minor injuries.
