A 73-year-old Atchison man was transported by ambulance to an area hospital for injuries he suffered Friday as the result of a two-vehicle Friday afternoon accident west of Atchison city limits.
Robert C. Stuebs was identified as the driver of a 2015 Ford Exedition that was stopped at his mailbox in the 10000 block of U.S. Highway 59, Atchison County Sheriff Jack Laurie reported.
Stuebs was facing westbound along the south side of the highway when he attempted to make a U-turn crossing both lanes of travel. While he attempted to do so, Stuebs was struck by a westbound 2020 Peterbilt semitractor-trailer driven by 56-year-old Gerald R. Masters, of Troy.
Masters was unable to avoid Stuebs and struck him along the rear passenger door, Laurie reported Stuebs was transported by Atchison County EMS to Mosaic Life Care.
