Several HLG students & staff hospitalized

Five members of a mission team from Hannibal-LaGrange College remain hospitalized after an accident in Haiti.

The Baptist-affiliated college sent 14 students and one faculty sponsor on mission work in earthquake-ravaged Haiti.

On Saturday, members of the group were involved in an accident in which their vehicle overturned.

The injuries are not considered life-threatening, but four members of the HLG group are hospitalized in Miami and one in St. Louis, according to the college Web site.

The others were treated and released.

The eight-day mission trip was through Haiti-based Blessing Hearts International.
