An early morning accident on Highway 36 near Marceline, Missouri, resulted in moderate injuries for two women when their car crashed and struck a tree on April 27.

At approximately 4:02 a.m., a 2021 Volkswagen Jetta, driven by Amnah E. Thabet, 20, of Lenexa, Kansas, was traveling westbound when it failed to navigate a curve.
