The Missouri Highway Patrol reports that Tuesday morning at 11, a pickup driven by 47-year-old John Pitts of Fairfax, MO. was following a car driven by 57-yer-old Scott Langley of College Springs, Iowa and impacted the rear of the Langly vehicle when both vehicles started to slow to turn south from Highway 136 onto Interstate 29 at the city limits of Rock Port.

Pitts suffered what were described as minor injuries and was transported to the Fairfax Community Hospital by the Atchison Holt EMS. Langley was not injured.

The front left of the semi truck impacted the passenger rear of the Durango operated by Dougherty which then went off the road and slid down an embankment .

Dougherty suffered what were described as moderate injuries and was transferred to Mosaic Life Care Hospital in St. Joseph by the Atchison Holt Ambulance.

The Holt County Sheriff's Office and Craig Fire Department also responded to the wreck.
