A Hopkinton man was injured in an accident on Highway 13 Saturday morning.
The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says it happened at the intersection with Mount Vernon Road shortly after 8 am.
A truck driven by 63-year old Patrick Cook of Holy Cross was rear-ended by another truck pulling a trailer. Authorities say Cook was stopped on the roadway for a red light.
Cook was not hurt. The driver of the truck that hit his truck, 68-year old Walter Poehler of Hopkinton, was transported to St. Luke’s Hospital with what authorities believed were non-life-threatening injuries.
Poehler was cited for failing to stop in an assured clear distance.
