Two people suffered serious injuries Monday night in separate accidents involving a horse-drawn buggy and an all-terrain vehicle.
A 10-year-old boy was injured while riding a Polaris Scrambler ATV at 7:15 p.m. at Westbound Berlin Road, about a mile south of King City, Missouri, in Gentry County. The Missouri State Highway Patrol said John A. Rigney was operating the ATV when he turned from a field entrance in front of a Chevrolet Malibu driven by James E. Davis of King City.
Rigney, of Albany, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Mosaic Life Care in an ambulance.
The second accident occurred at 8 p.m. on U.S. Highway 136, 1 mile west of Stanberry in Gentry County. The Highway Patrol said a Ford Fusion struck the buggy in the rear.
The driver of the buggy, 28-year-old Eli L. Shrock of Stanberry, was ejected from the vehicle and was flown to North Kansas City hospital with injuries described as serious. The driver of the Fusion, 18-year-old Kiera D. Greer, of Stanberry, was not listed as injured.
