Pair seriously injured in rollover crash

SIKESTON, MO (KAIT) - Two people were seriously injured early Monday morning when their Jeep overturned.

The crash was reported at 5 a.m. on Route Z, east of Scott County Road 459, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report.

Elizabeth A. Phelps, 23, of Chaffee was eastbound when her 2004 Jeep crossed the center line. Phelps apparently overcorrected and the SUV slid off the right side of the roadway before overturning.

Dylan N. Hilburn, 18, of Caruthersville was thrown from the vehicle. Neither he nor Phelps was wearing a seat belt, the report stated.

Hilburn and Phelps were both taken by ambulance to Missouri Delta Medical Center in Sikeston with serious injuries.
