Driver escapes with ‘minor injuries’ when semi-tractor trailer overturns

The driver of a semi-tractor trailer escaped with what were described as “minor injuries,” when his vehicle left Missouri Highway 5 and overturned Tuesday morning blocking both lanes of the highway.

Missouri State Highway Patrol says in an online traffic crash report 61-year-old Terry A. Middleton of Everton was the driver of the truck.

Middleton was northbound when the truck went off the right side of the highway and then partially returned to the roadway, before overturning.

He was transported to Baxter Regional Medical Center by Ozark County EMS, following the 9:50 a.m. accident. His vehicle was towed from the scene.
