Both vehicles suffered severe damage due to the accident and had to be towed from the scene.
Two people involved in the accident, identified as 38-year-old Stephanie Hamm and 63-year-old Anna Hamm, were both injured. The two women were transported by Marion County EMS to Hannibal Regional Hospital, where they underwent emergency treatment.
