Rescue personnel move equipment after two vehicles collided Tuesday morning at Twin Bridges.

Two persons received injuries Tuesday in an accident on slick pavement near Twin Bridges on U.S. 63 north of Houston.

Cpl. Curtis Haden of the Missouri State Highway Patrol said a southbound 1995 Ford minivan driven by Russell Reed, 40, of Raymondville, ran partially off the right side of the highway and struck a guardrail before sliding across the highway and hitting an opposite guardrail.

The vehicle was later struck broadside by a northbound 2004 Chevrolet pickup driven by William M. Breeden, 52, of Licking.

Reed, who was wearing a seat belt, refused treatment. Breeden was taken with minor injuries to Texas County Memorial Hospital. He was not wearing a seat belt, Haden said.

Both vehicles were totaled.
