Two are pulled from a car trapped inside a creek near Route B northwest of Kirksville.
Several emergency crews were called to the scene just after 2:30 p.m. Thursday where they found Phyllis Mills, 75, of Greentop and Franklin Cleary, 4, of Greentop stuck inside of a white Buick.
The woman was transported to Northeast Regional Medical Center with minor injuries.
The child was picked up from the scene by family members.
The cause of the wreck is unknown at this time.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol and Trooper Cary Porter shared the latest information.
â??So far what the evidence at the scene tells me is that the vehicle traveled off of the roadway, struck one of the warning signs for the bridge, continued off the east side of the roadway, struck an embankment, became air borne for a short time and then went into the creek, striking the creek,â?? said Porter.
