(Potosi, Mo.) A man from Irondale was taken to Washington Memorial Hospital in Potosi after being involved in a two-vehicle accident Thursday evening in Washington County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports the accident took place northbound on Highway ‘U’, north of Spicer Road, when a Chevrolet Silverado driven by 56-year-old Gary Perry of Irondale was traveling southbound and failed to maintain the lane. That caused the towed unit of the Silverado to strike the driver-side front of a Dodge Dakota driven by 82-year-old Chester Wells of Irondale that was traveling northbound.

Wells sustained moderate injuries in the crash.
