Two Trenton residents and one Maryville man sustained injuries when one pickup truck struck another two miles east of Arkoe Tuesday morning.

Metzgar and his passenger, 66-year-old Connie Metzgar of Trenton were transported to Saint Francis Hospital in Maryville with moderate injuries. A private vehicle transported Autem to St. Francis Hospital with what the Patrol called minor injuries.
