Gorman and children Lillian, 5; and Madison, 7, all of Licking, were all injured and taken to Texas County Memorial Hospital in Houston. The girls’ injuries were minor. Gorman had moderate injuries, Nelson said.
The vehicle was totaled.

Keith M., 56, and Sarah J. Kargel, 43, sustained moderate injuries and were taken to Ozarks Medical Center at West Plains.
