A crash Monday night on Highway 50 west of Sedalia left two people hurt.

The crash happened in the eastbound lanes near Sadie Lane around 7:35 p.m., according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Troopers said a car driven by 19-year-old Brady D. Carr rear-ended a motorcycle waiting at a red light before going off the road and hitting a ditch.

The driver of the motorcycle, Charles E. McGinnis, 50, and a passenger, Katherine J. Williams, 32, both of Sedalia, were thrown from the motorcycle, according to the crash report.

Emergency crews flew McGinnis to University Hospital in Columbia with serious injuries. Williams was taken by ambulance to the hospital with serious injuries.

An MU Health Care spokesman said Tuesday morning that McGinnis is in serious condition and Williams is in fair condition. McGinnis or Williams weren't wearing helmets, according to the crash report.

Troopers said Carr wasn't hurt in the crash.
