Emergency personnel responded at about 7 a.m. to a crash at Highways 17 and AA west of Bucyrus.

Two Houston residents were injured Tuesday afternoon in a two-car crash in Osage County, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said.

Troopers said a 2009 Nissan Altima driven eastbound on U.S. 50 by Kyla M. Walser, 28, of Houston, attempted to execute a U-turn and pulled into the path of an eastbound 2000 Ford F-350 truck driven by Byron K. Schmidt, 54, of Leasburg.

Walser had moderate injuries and was transported to Capital Regional Hospital. A passenger, Kirby J. Drewel, 4, of Houston, was released to his father with minor injuries. Schmidt had minor injuries and was sent to the same hospital.

Troopers said both vehicles had moderate damage.
