Three northern Missouri residents were seriously hurt in a Wednesday afternoon wreck in Chariton County.

The one-car crash happened at 1:15 p.m. on Highway 24 three miles east of Brunswick.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said a car driven by Misty Penrey, 37, of Brunswick, ran off the right side of the highway, struck a guardrail and became airborne. When it landed, the car rolled several times before coming to rest partially submerged in Palmer Creek.

Penrey and her two passengers, Brandy Taylor, 41, and Derrick Williams, 36, both of Brunswick, all suffered serious injuries.

The three were flown by medical helicopters to University Hospital in Columbia.

The online crash report states that no one in the car was wearing a seatbelt.
