A Prairie Home woman was hurt in a crash on Saturday in Moniteau County.

According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Samantha J. Evers, 27, of Holts Summit, was northbound on state Highway 87 one-tenth of a mile north of state Highway 179 at 1:45 a.m. when she failed to negotiate a curve, ran off the left side of the road, struck a sign and overturned.

An occupant, Elizabeth P. Drennan, 22, had moderate injuries and was taken to University Hospital in Columbia. Drennan was not wearing a seat belt, but Evers was, the report said.

Evers was charged with careless and imprudent driving involving an accident and driving while intoxicated.
