The highway patrol reports Reeves was taken by ambulance to Ray County Memorial Hospital in Richmond with minor injuries.

She was a passenger in a vehicle driven by 76-year-old Charles Reeves of Cowgill. They were driving northbound when a southbound vehicle slowed to make a left turn into a private drive and, authorities say, pulled into the path of the oncoming vehicle. The turning vehicle was driven by 79-year-old Charles Cassity of Rayville.

Neither driver was reported hurt in the 11 am Wednesday accident and all occupants were using seat belts.
