A Diamond motorcyclist sustained minor injuries in a two-vehicle crash that took place at 5:20 p.m. Wednesday on Missouri Highway 59 at Route J in Diamond.

Samuel L. White, 59, was taken by ambulance to Joplin’s Freeman West Hospital for treatment.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the crash happened as a westbound Chevrolet Impala driven by Cathryn R. Shipman, 56, of Diamond pulled into the path of a southbound 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle ridden by White. The motorcycle then struck the Impala, a patrol report said. Shipman wasn’t hurt in the crash.

White was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, the report noted.
