MINER -- An East Prairie woman received what appeared to be moderate to serious injuries in a Friday car crash.

The accident occurred at approximately 9:56 a.m. on Highway H in Miner near the Miner Baptist Church, about a half mile north of Malone Avenue, according to Chief Roger Moore of the Miner Police Department.

The collision involved a northbound car driven by Harold S. Matheney, 29, of East Prairie on Highway H and a Taskmaster Components flatbed truck driven by Rodney E. Baugher, 53, of Sikeston that was entering the highway from the east side of the road.

"We're still investigating what happened," Moore said.

A passenger in Matheney's car, Monica L. Williams, 23, of East Prairie, who is reportedly two-months pregnant, received injuries to her head and neck area and was transported by ambulance to Missouri Delta Medical Center.

A 2-year-old child who was in a safety seat in Matheney's car was apparently not injured but was also transported by ambulance to MDMC "for precautionary measures," Moore said.

Matheney was also taken to MDMC by ambulance for minor injuries. Baugher was apparently uninjured.

Miner emergency personnel were assisted by the Sikeston Department of Public Safety with the extrication of Williams from the car.
