You could call it the “Battle of the Chevy 2500s.”
The Missouri State Highway Patrol says an eastbound 2007 Chevrolet 2500 pickup truck, driven by 25-year-old Nikoma J. Farnum of Webb City, failed to stop at a stop sign at Fir Road in Carl Junction Friday afternoon.
The vehicle then smacked into a westbound 2005 Chevrolet 2500 driven by 63-year old Dennis J. Dowling of Joplin.
Dowling had been trying to make a left turn at the time of the crash.
Dowling, who was wearing a safety device, was transported to Mercy Hospital in Joplin but suffered only minor injuries.
No re-match is planned.
