Two Joplin residents were injured in a two-vehicle accident at 4 p.m. Monday on Interstate 44 west of Mount Vernon, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The driver of one of the vehicles, Dominic S. Martello, 30, and his passenger, Dalton Link, 21, were taken by ambulance to Freeman Hospital West in Joplin, the state patrol said.

Their eastbound car was in the passing lane when Martello lost control of the vehicle and it crossed the centerline and struck an eastbound tractor-trailer driven by Jose D. Marquez, 38, of Oak Lawn, Ill., the patrol said.
