Two southwest Iowa men were injured, one seriously, in a rear end accident Tuesday.

At about 10:30 Tuesday morning, a Page County Roads vehicle driven by 39-year-old Matthew Miers of Clarinda was beginning road work on county road J14 in the eastbound lane.  A 2008 Chevy truck driven by 77-year-old Michael Delehant of Imogene was also traveling eastbound on J14 when he rear ended the Miers truck, which was stopped in the roadway.

Both trucks sustained heavy damage from the accident.  Both men were transported to Montgomery County memorial Hospital in Red Oak where Miers was transported by lifenet helicopter to the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha for further treatment of his injuries.  An update on Delehant’s injuries is not currently known.

The accident remains under investigation.
