A Marshall woman suffered minor injuries in a one-vehicle accident that occurred in Saline County Thursday night.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 41-year-old Kelly R. Pratt was the driver of a westbound 2014 Chevrolet on County Road 240, one mile west of Highway 240 at 10:34 p.m., when the driver swerved to avoid a deer and the vehicle traveled off the left side of the roadway and struck an embankment.

Pratt sought her own private medical treatment, according to the report.

The Chevy had moderate damage and was towed from the scene.
