The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported a two vehicle accident Thursday evening, that sent a Green Ridge man to the hospital.

The accident occurred just after 5:00, in Saline County on Highway 65, just south of 110th Road.

A 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee slowed down to avoid a truck that was blocking the roadway, when a 2007 Buick Lucerne collided with the rear of the Jeep.

The driver of the Buick, 71-year old James D. Harms, of Green Ridge, suffered minor injuries in the accident. He was taken to Bothwell Regional Health Center for treatment.
