A 53-year-old man from Lake Saint Louis was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries he suffered from a single-car accident on Thursday afternoon.
Donald Thomason was driving just after 4 p.m. eastbound on Hwy 40, just east of Lake Saint Louis Boulevard, when he travelled off the right side of the road, across a private drive and struck a utility pole.
Thomason was immediately taken to Mercy Medical Center in Creve Coeur by a St. Charles County ambulance. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, he was wearing a safety device.
Thomason's car, a 1995 GMC Safari, had extensive damage.
