JASPER COUNTY, Mo. — Just after 10:15 p.m. Tuesday evening JASCO received reports of a rollover crash on North Schifferdecker in the Snowball area. 

METS ambulance, Carl Junction Fire, and Jasper County Sheriff’s Deputies responded. Missouri State Highway Patrol were notified. 

The 1996 Honda Accord was traveling north. Left the roadway and overturned numerous times, going through a barbed wire fence.

Three Webb City, Missouri, teens inside all escaped serious injury Trooper M.R. Cook said, because of their seat belts. He emphasized that a crash like this normally has a different outcome. 

H&H Wrecker removed the car from the field. 

METS ambulance transported all three teens to Freeman West with non-life threatening injuries. 

As standard procedure the MSHP do not release names of those involved in traffic incidents who are 17 years of age and under. So all three are not identified by name. However the female driver is 17. Two males are 16 and 17.
