An Eldon man suffered moderate injuries Monday after rear-ending a farm tractor in Miller County.

A 2000 Ford Range, driven by Boyd Drury, 52, of Eldon, was heading eastbound on Missouri 52, about 1,000 feet west of Eldon Road, when his vehicle struck the rear of an eastbound farm tractor, driven by James Hegg, 56, of Eldon.

Drury suffered moderate injuries and was transported by ambulance to Capital Region Medical Center, according to a Missouri Highway Patrol report.

Drury was not wearing a seatbelt. Hegg was exempt from wearing a seatbelt, the report states.
