After a car crash that took place Friday evening in Henry County, Missouri, two teenage girls are left with serious injuries. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the 18-year-old driver from Calhoun, Missouri was driving north on county road NE 701 when she failed to negotiate a turn and lost control of her automobile. Her 2005 Mercury Sable then turned 180 degrees and left the road landing in an embankment. The vehicle’s other passengers included a 13-year-old, a 14- year-old, and a 34-year-old all from Calhoun County. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the injured parties as they begin to recover.
