MEMPHIS, Mo. — A crash near Memphis, Mo. early Thursday sent two drivers to the hospital.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a 2017 GMC Terrain driven by Morgan M. Sites, 31, of Memphis was heading west on U.S. 136 around 4:30 a.m., three miles west of Memphis when she crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic. The Terrain hit a 2007 GMC Acadia, driven by Leonard D. Price, 43, of Kahoka, head-on, sending the Terrain off the left side of the road into an embankment.
