Two people – a Festus woman and a De Soto man – were seriously hurt in a motorcycle accident Saturday, Oct. 1, on Flucom Road near Fox Farm Road east of De Soto.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that Kurbie Moon, 52, of De Soto was riding a 2005 Harley Davidson Fatboy motorcycle west in the 4000 block of Flucom Road at 4:20 p.m. when he swerved around a vehicle stopped in the road to make a left turn onto a private driveway. The motorcycle overturned onto its right side, throwing Moon and a passenger, Amber Covington, 43, of Festus, off.
Both Moon and Covington sustained serious injuries and both were taken to Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Creve Coeur. Moon was taken by ARCH helicopter and Covington by Valle Ambulance.
Updates on their conditions were not available.
Neither was wearing a safety helmet, the report said. The motorcycle had moderate damage, according to the report.
