Two Marshall residents were fatally injured in a two-vehicle crash that occurred in Saline County at 6:30 p.m. Friday evening on US 65 at College in Marshall.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Nathaniel D. and Shelley L. Offield were southbound on 65 on a 2012 Harley Davidson driven by Nathaniel, when a northbound 2016 Ford driven by 80-year-old Janice L. Jones of Marshall failed to yield to the Harley Davidson. The motorcycle struck the right rear corner panel of the Ford, causing both riders to be ejected.

All three were transported to nearby Fitzgibbons Hospital, where Nathaniel, 38, was pronounced dead at 6:35 p.m. by Dr. Murphy, while Shelley, 37, was pronounced dead at 6:46 p.m. by Dr. Turner. Their bodies were taken to Campbell-Lewis Funeral Home in Marshall.

Jones was uninjured, but was transported as a precaution.

Both vehicles had moderate damage and were towed from the scene.
