The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that an eastbound 2010 Mercury Mariner, driven by 40-year-old Anthony J. Gibson of Stover, was on 3rd Street, 150 feet west of Cherry Street, in Stover, at 1:10 a.m., when the vehicle traveled off the right side of the road and across Cherry Street. The Mercury then struck two trees before coming to rest.
