      Snow not a factor in multi-vehicle accident

      <p>The accident happened around 3:30 p.m. on Illinois Street, just east of the Kirksville Hy-Vee.</p>

      Snowy roads were not a factor in a multi-car accident that occured in Kirksville Friday afternoon.

      The accident happened around 3:30 p.m. on Illinois Street, just east of the Kirksville Hy-Vee.

      Officers on the scene said the driver of a black town car heading westbound on Illinois dropped his phone, bent over to pick it up, and hit the car directly in front of him by the time he looked up again.

      The impact caused a chain reaction, damaging two more cars. Luckily no one was seriously hurt.

      Two individuals with minor injuries were transported by private vehicle to Northeast Regional Medical Center for further assesment.
