The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports two accidents worked in the Lakes Region on Thursday injuring a total of four people.

A woman from Shell Knob escaped with only minor injuries after her vehicle was rear-ended while stopping for a School Bus. The accident happened on Highway 39 in Southern Stone County at 7:40 Thursday Morning. 61-year-old Sharon Mitchell was taken to Cox Medical Center in Branson for treatment of her injuries while the driver of the other vehicle, 55-year-old Helen Bobsin also of Shell Knob, was not injured.

Two other Shell Knob residents sustained serious injuries as they were involved in a crash in Barry County late Thursday afternoon. The MSHP Report says the accident happened around 5:45 on Highway 112 south of Cassville when a car was hit by a SUV whose driver was adjusting the GPS on his phone causing his vehicle to cross the center line. The driver and passenger in the car that was hit, 66-year-old Michael Burke and 65-year-old Donna Burke, were both airlifted to Cox South in Springfield for treatment. The driver of the other vehicle, 31-year-old Daxthil Sibrian of Cave Springs, Arkansas, sustained moderate injuries and was taken for treatment to Mercy Hospital in Rogers.
