MONROE CITY , Mo. — A St. Peters, Mo., woman suffered minor injures Saturday morning after a crash in Monroe County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said a 2014 Ford Escape driven by Nicholas R. Powell, 23, of Stoutsville, was heading east at 10:40 a.m. on U.S. 24, 3 miles south of Monroe City when it slowed because of animals in the road. A 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 driven by Sharon D. Wood, 59, had topped a hill crest and was unable to avoid the slowed vehicle and struck its rear.

Wood was taken by Monroe County Ambulance to Hannibal Regional Hospital for treatment. Powell was uninjured.
