The driver of the pick-up, a 45-year old male from Lowry City, was transported via ambulance to Research Medical Center in Kansas City with serious injuries.

His passenger, a 39-year-old female, also from Lowry City, was seriously injured during the impact. She was airlifted to Research Medical as well.
