Salem woman injured in Sunday crash

SALEM, MO – A Salem woman was injured in a two-vehicle collision Sunday when she lost control of her 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt and overcorrected, striking another vehicle in the process.

The Salem News reports that Briana M. Bacon, 23, was traveling northbound on MO-19 about two miles south of Salem when she lost control navigating a curve, skidding off the right side of the road. Bacon overcorrected, crossed the center lane, and collided with a southbound 2006 Ford Focus driven by Susan L. Hancock, also of Salem.

Authorities arrived on the scene at approximately 2:40 p.m., and took Bacon to Salem Memorial Direct Hospital for treatment of moderate injuries. Her Chevrolet was removed from the scene by a tow truck.

Hancock does not appear to have been injured in the collision, and her Ford was driven from the scene.
