A Hughesville couple were injured in an ATV crash that occurred Wednesday morning in Pettis County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that an eastbound 2018 Kubota ATV, driven by 69-year-old Michael R. Cornine, was traveling through a cattle field on private property off US 65, 400 feet south of Shannon Road around 9:30 a.m., when it struck a drainage ditch and the Kubota abruptly stopped, ejecting Cornine and his passenger, 60-year-old Jenny L. Cornine, both of Hughesville.

Jenny Cornine suffered minor injuries, and was transported by private vehicle to Fitzgibbon Hospital in Marshall for treatment. Michael Cornine suffered serious injuries, and was flown to University Hospital in Columbia.

The Kubota had moderate damage.

Pettis County Deputies assisted the Patrol.
