Categorized as Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

Edina, MO (June 23, 2022) – A motor vehicle crash that occurred in Knox County left two people injured. At around 11:15 a.m., on June 20, emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Missouri State Route 6.

Reports from local authorities show that a 2007 Volvo semi was pulling a grain trailer while traveling on Missouri State Route 6. As the vehicle attempted to pass a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado, the Silverado turned into the side of the semi-truck. Both vehicles sustained significant damage as a result of the crash and had to be towed from the scene.

The driver of the semi, 70-year-old Larry Howard, suffered serious injuries in the accident. He was transported to Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville, Missouri for emergency care.

The driver of the Chevrolet, 79-year-old Linda Early, was transported to Samaritan Hospital in Macon, Missouri for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Larry Howard and Linda Early at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
