Two St. Clair residents were injured being involved in a car crash Wednesday, Dec. 20.

Lucas A. Osborn, 23, St. Clair, was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Impala westbound on Mill Hill Road, west of Bethel Church Road, when he failed to negotiate a right curve at 11:05 a.m., according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol preliminary report.

Osborn’s vehicle then traveled off the right side of the road and struck a tree. Osborn and passenger Allen M. Richards, 20, St. Clair, were taken to Mercy Hospital St. Louis by St. Clair EMS for injuries.

Both the driver and the passenger were not wearing seat belts, the patrol said.
