Four people were injured Friday in a two-car accident on Larch Lane, six miles north of Jackson.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the accident occurred at 11:22 a.m. when Roy Joyce, 28, of Perryville, Mo., attempted to make a left turn and steered his 1995 Plymouth into the path of a 1993 Honda driven by Victoria Smith, 17, of Jackson.

The vehicles struck head-on.

Joyce and a passenger in his car, Samantha Joyce, 18, were taken to Saint Francis Medical Center in Cape Girardeau with moderate injuries.

Smith and her passenger, 12-year-old Tessa Smith of Jackson, were taken to Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau, also with moderate injuries.

The patrol said it will issue a citation to Joyce for failure to yield.
