Manchester man injured in collision

Mark Luensmann, of Manchester, sustained minor injuries from an airbag deployment resulting from an accident near the intersection of Hwy 13 and Valley Farm Road, Nov. 12, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office reported.

At approximately 7:30 a.m. deputies, along with Central City Fire and Central City Ambulance, responded to a report of a two-vehicle collision.

Authorities say Luensmann was southbound on Hwy 13 when a semi he was following slowed to stop for a school bus that was picking up children.

Luensmann “failed to observe the semi slowing down and rear-ended the trailer,” a release states. Luensmann sustained minor injuries and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. He was also cited for following too closely.
