An accident took place this morning near the intersection of highway 5 and T17, on T17 just east of highway 5. Officials on the scene say a small sedan collided head-on with a Hy-Vee delivery straight truck. The driver of the Hy-Vee truck reportedly saw the sedan weaving as it approached him so he slowed down and pulled off the road and stopped, honking his horn. The driver of the sedan, an unidentified woman, drove her vehicle head-on into the delivery truck. Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Iowa State Patrol, Clay Township and Bussey Fire and Rescue responded to the scene. The woman driver of the sedan was transported to the Knoxville Hospital and Clinics with apparent non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the truck was uninjured.
