New Cambria, MO– A New Cambria man suffered serious injuries around noon Saturday, when his utility task vehicle collided head on with a John Deere Tractor.

Forty-seven-year-old Michael T. Duncan was flown to University Hospital in Columbia. The driver of the tractor was uninjured.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says the head on collision happened because roadway visibility on Crystal Rd. near Concord Rd. was obstructed by smoke from a nearby fire.
