After the crash, the Ford Explorer went off the right shoulder of the road, where it slammed into a tree.

The driver of the Ford Explorer, Danielle D. Thornton, 32, of Portageville, was transported to St. Francis Hospital by private vehicle. She was treated for minor injuries.

The driver of the Ford F-150 was unhurt in the crash.

Both vehicles were towed from the scene by Midwest Towing.
