      Original story:

      The superintendent of Blair Oaks schools is in serious condition after he was ejected from his car in a crash Friday night.

      According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, 44-year-old Jim Jones was traveling westbound on Highway 50 west of McGirk when another vehicle tried to change lanes and struck Jones' vehicle.

      The second vehicle was driven by 17-year-old Ethan Jones, of California. Highway Patrol was unsure if the two drivers are related.

      Jim Jones was ejected from his vehicle as it overturned several times. He was not wearing a seatbelt.

      He was life-flighted to University Hospital.

      Also in the car with Jim Jones were 14-year-old Emilee Jones, who sustained moderate injuries, and 16-year-old Allison Jones, who sustained minor injures.

      Both girls were taken by ambulance to Capital Region Medical Center. They were both wearing seatbelts.

      Ethan Jones sustained minor injuries in the crash.
