A Pierce City man was injured in a two-vehicle accident at 1:45 p.m. Thursday on Missouri Highway 37, a quarter-mile northwest of Monett at Lawrence County Road 1070, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Donald L. Holland, 47, was taken by ambulance to Cox Monett Hospital, the state patrol said.

Holland was driving an eastbound van that collided with a southbound pickup truck driven by Jackson M.J. Dempsey, 18, of Pierce City, that the patrol said failed to stop for a stop sign.
