Two people were left with minor injuries following a Friday morning crash in Marion County. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol the mishap happened at 5:10 a.m. on eastbound U.S. 24, one-half mile east of County Road 355. A 2013 Nissan Juke was being driven eastbound by 61-year-old Karen J. Fleshner of Ewing. Also being driven eastbound was a 2016 Hyndai Tucson, which was being operated by 68-year-old Margie M. Eickelschulte of La Grange. The Juke was following the Tucson when they met another vehicle traveling in the wrong direction in their lane. To avoid a collision with the wrong-way driver the Tucson was abruptly stopped and was struck in the rear by the Juke. Both drivers sustained minor injuries. The women, who were both wearing safety devices, were taken by ambulance to Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Ill.
