A man was transported to the Knoxville Airport and taken via helicopter to Mercy Hospital after colliding with a car south of Knoxville. At about 5:15, Knoxville Rural Fire Department and Knoxville Rescue were called out to Pratt Drive, half-a-mile west of Highway 5, at a report of a car versus motorcycle accident. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office and Iowa State Patrol also responded to the scene. Sheriff’s Deputy Justin Kingery said the man was coherent and talking before he was transported to the airport.
