The accident report indicates the crash took place around around 9:10 in the southbound lane of Highway 65 north of Branson when a pick-up driven by 36-year-old David Brown of Ozark ran into the rear of a pick-up driven by 57-year-old Brett Caperton of Walnut Shade.

Neither driver was injured but two juveniles in Brown’s pick-up did sustain minor injuries that were treated at Cox Medical Center in Branson.
