A Gorin man suffered moderate injuries in a one-vehicle accident in Knox County at 5:10 a.m. on Saturday May 9th.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Jesse L. Estabrook, 30, was northbound on Route M, six miles east of Baring, in a 1995 Chevrolet when he apparently fell asleep. The vehicle traveled off the west side of the roadway where it struck an embankment.

Estabrook was transported by Knox County Ambulance to Scotland County Memorial Hospital in Memphis.

The Highway Patrol was assisted at the scene by the Knox County Sheriff’s Department, the Knox County Rescue Squad and the ambulance service.
