ST. LOUIS -- A Hannibal teen was seriously injured in a Thursday night crash in St. Louis County.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports a 2005 Toyota Matrix driven by Ricky R. Jeffries, 18, of Country Club Hills, Ill., was westbound on Page Ave. at Ferguson Ave. at 8:21 p.m. The patrol said the Toyota crossed the center of the road and struck head-on an eastbound 2008 Mazda 3 driven by Gainell Graham, 53, of St. Louis.

Graham and a passenger, Debbie Graham, 18, of Hannibal, both were taken by Christian Hospital EMS to Barnes-Jewish Hospital with serious injuries. Both were wearing seat belts, the patrol said, but Jeffries was not.

The patrol was assisted by the Pagedale Police Department and St. Louis City Police Department.
