Two people were transported to EASTAR Health System on Friday afternoon after a vehicle driven by Zihad Hodzic of Missouri rear-ended a car at Arline Street while northbound on U.S. 69, Officer Bob Lynch said. Hodzic was driving a red, Freightliner tractor-trailer rig at about 2 p.m. when he rear-ended a black, 2007 BMW. Hodzic was cited for following too closely, Lynch said. The BMW’s occupants, Kayelee Lozano and Daniel Lozano, were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, Lynch said.
