Two Men Injured in Linn County Accident

Two men were injured in a vehicle collision in Linn County.

A report from the Missouri Highway Patrol says 64-year-old Stephen M. Biggs of Purdin was not wearing a seatbelt as he was waiting to make a left turn on MO-5 just south of Purdin.

At 8:20 pm Sunday, 19-year-old Malachi A. Whitson of Hale drove his vehicle into the back of Bigg’s vehicle.

The Linn County Sheriff’s Department and first responders assisted the patrol at the scene as a moderately injured Biggs was taken to Pershing Memorial Hospital in Brookfield by Linn County Ambulance.

Whitson suffered a minor injury and was taken by private vehicle to Hedrick Medical Center in Chillicothe.
