Reports show that a collision between a 2002 Mercedes C240 and a 1999 GMC Sierra 1500 blocked the roadway for an extended period during the morning on Thursday. Both vehicles were left totaled and had to be towed from the scene.
The drivers of both vehicles were injured. EMS transported 34-year-old Rebecca Carty and 53-year-old Paul Johnson to Mercy Joplin for care.
