Two separate accidents, just two minutes apart, result in a seven-car pile up on Business 49, one mile south of Joplin.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says around 5 P.M. on Tuesday, a car rear ended another, which led to two more cars to also get hit from behind.
A couple minutes later in the same area, three other cars were also involved in rear end accidents, one of which went into a ditch.
Four people had minor or moderate injuries, all of which went to the hospital, including one by ambulance.
The incident left two vehicles totaled, and the other five with moderate damages.
