Three people were injured during a two-vehicle collision Friday morning in Page County. Sheriff’s officials say the accident happened just after 11:15-a.m. on Highway 2, at O Avenue.

Authorities say a late model gold colored Dodge Durango with an unknown Maryland license plate was traveling west on Highway 2, when it made a sudden u-turn, in the middle of the road and headed east. A second vehicle, owned by Barker’s Implement and driven by 24-year old Justin Fuller, of New Market, was forced to stop suddenly, and in the process, was rear-ended by a 2003 Toyota Camry owned by Jon Bix, of Coin, driven by 15-year old Noah Bix, of Coin.

Both drivers, and a passenger in the Camry, 13-year old Elijah Bix, suffered possible, unknown injuries, and transported to the Clarinda Regional Health Care Center by Clarinda E-M-S. Sheriff’s officials say the Noah Bix was driving on a school permit and was coming from an open gym basketball event in Clarinda, when the accident occurred.

The Durango, which was last seen headed north on O Avenue, was never found, despite efforts by Montgomery County Sheriff’s deputies to locate the vehicle. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of a gold-colored Dodge Durango with Maryland license plates, should call the Page County Sheriff’s office at 712-542-5193, or your local law enforcement agency.
