The van went down an embankment and hit several trees. The Fulton woman has serious injuries. A male passenger from Jefferson City has minor injuries.
The other accident happened at about 9 a.m. Saturday. Troopers say Doris Mayuiers, 69, tried to drive across Highway 63 at Peabody Rd. north of Columbia. She pulled in front of another car though, and it hit her. Mayuiers has serious injuries. The two people in the other car have moderate injuries.
