A California man was injured in a one-vehicle accident that occurred Tuesday in Benton County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that an eastbound 2006 GMC, driven by 38-year-old Josiah D. Snelgrove of Nevada City, California, was on Lost Valley Road, west of Hatchery Avenue around 5:30 p.m. when he began skidding and crossed the center of the roadway. The vehicle then ran off the left side, began to overturn and struck a telephone box.

Snelgrove suffered serious injuries, and was flown to University Hospital by Life Flight. He was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, according to the report.

The GMC was totaled.

Benton County Deputies assisted the Patrol.

Snelgrove was later arrested by the Patrol at 6:15 p.m., and charged with driving while intoxicated and failure to drive on the right half of the roadway resulting in a crash.
