(De Soto) A De Soto woman was seriously injured last night in a traffic accident on Hillsboro Victoria Road.

The highway patrol says a Firebird driven by 21 year old Jacob Bourbon of De Soto was driving north when his vehicle started to slide and ran off the road, hitting a tree and a utility pole.

Bourbon suffered moderate injuries, but his passenger, 22 year old Tiffanie Davis, was seriously injured.

Both were taken to Mercy Hospital South for treatment.
