HALLSVILLE, Mo. -

Three men were hurt in a crash on Route B Sunday night near Hallsville.

Boone County fire crews at the scene told ABC 17 News two cars hit nearly head-on just inside the city limits.

One car rolled onto its top during the crash, trapping a man inside.

The other car was crushed. Rescue crews had to use Jaws of Life to get another man out of that car.

The three men were taken to a Columbia hospital, where one was in serious condition Sunday night.

The crash shut down Route B into Hallsville for more than one hour.
