Knox Co Crash Injures Kirksville Man

A Kirksville man was airlifted to Quincy following a crash in Knox County Friday night. Missouri State Highway patrol troopers say 59-year old Sterling Owens was alone in his 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora when he lost control about 7 Friday night on Knox County Route K, 3 miles west of Colony. Owens was westbound on Route K, according to troopers, who say he drove off the north shoulder and overturned. It’s unclear at this time why he drifted off the road. Owens, who was listed with moderate injuries, was airlifted to Blessing Memorial Hospital in Quincy.
