ROLL OVER: Three teenagers from Thayer were injured in a one-vehicle accident Oct. 18 on Highway 142, four miles west of Thayer. According to Trooper S.L. Nelson with Troop G of the Missouri State Patrol, a 1991 Oldsmobile driven by Derek Prototentis, 18, topped a hill at a high rate of speed and ran off the road, turning over. Prototentis suffered minor injuries and sought his own medical treatment. Two passengers in the car, Shane Waldorf, 16, and Chris Henderson, 16, both suffered moderate injuries in the accident. Waldorf was air lifted to a Springfield hospital and Henderson was taken to Ozarks Medical Center in West Plains where he was treated and released. Trooper Nelson reported that none of the three were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. Photo/Lawrence
