A two-vehicle wreck injured four Benton County residents on Saturday afternoon.
According to the MSHP, a northbound 2009 Ford driven by 22-year-old Hunter K.

Jones suffered serious injuries and was flown to University Hospital by Life Flight, as did a passenger in the Buick, 22-year-old Anna M. Roberts of Lincoln. Neither were wearing a safety device, according to the report.
Rachel Wienberg and one of her occupants, Alyssa K. Wienberg, 21, suffered minor injuries and were transported by ambulance to Bothwell Regional Health Center. Both of them were wearing a safety device.
Both vehicles were totaled and towed from the scene.
