Bonne Terre Teen Serious Injuries After Motorcycle Crash in St. Francois County

(Desloge) A 16-year-old boy from Bonne Terre was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash Saturday afternoon in St. Francois County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the accident took place on Pratte Road, west of Halter Road and just east of Desloge when the teenager on the Honda Knighthawk 750 motorcycle, failed to make a curve.

The bike ran off the road, returned to the roadway and then overturned.
