SOUTHEAST MISSOURI (KAIT) -

Three people are recovering from serious injuries in Missouri after two separate crashes happened Monday afternoon.

The first happened in Stoddard County on Missouri Highway 25 near Dexter around 1:45 p.m.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, 49-year-old Roxie Calder of Campbell was driving a 2006 Ford Freestyle south when she lost control on the wet road.

The SUV went off the left side of the road and struck a utility pole.

Calder was not injured but her passengers 30-year-old Rebecca Calder and 27-year-old Marcia Coshatt, both of Campbell, were seriously injured and taken to a Poplar Bluff hospital by ambulance. Coshatt was the only one not wearing a seat belt, according to MSHP.

About 20 minutes later in Butler County, another crash took place.

MSHP stated Shawn Tubbs, 40, of Harviell was driving north on Highway 142 at the Poplar Bluff city limits when the 2004 Toyota Matrix lost control.

The hatchback went off the road, hit a tree and a speed limit sign, and then overturned.

Tubbs was taken by ambulance to a Poplar Bluff hospital with serious injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt.
