Campers Injured at Shoal Creek

Two people were injured at the River Bend campsite at Shoal Creek just east of Reddings Mill Monday night as storms rolled through the area. Newton County Emergency Management Director Gary Roark tells News Talk KZRG what happened.

"Central dispatch got a report of some campers that were turned over by the wind. There were people trapped in one of the campers, and Reddings Mill Fire, and Newton County Ambulance responded to it."

The two campers, whose names have not been released, were taken to a Joplin hospital with minor injuries.
