Four people were injured Saturday morning, in a two-vehicle crash that took place on Highway K, one-half mile east of Nevada.
According to a report from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the crash occurred at 10:15 a.m., when an eastbound, blue, 1995 Dodge Neon driven by 19-year-old Christopher W. Bell, Nevada, turned into a private drive, as a silver 2006 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 49-year-old John W. Randall was approaching from the opposite direction. The two vehicles collided, and Bell, who suffered minor injuries, sought his own treatment, the patrol said. Kyle R. Quick, 25, a passenger in Bell's vehicle, suffered serious injuries and was transported by Eagle-Med to Freeman hospital, Joplin.
Randall suffered minor injuries and was transported by ambulance to Nevada Regional Medical Center. Cole A. Down, 18, a passenger in Randall's vehicle, suffered minor injuries and was transported by Eagle-Med to Freeman hospital in Joplin.
None of the crash victims were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash, according to the report.
