A two-vehicle accident involving an 18-wheeler in Laclede County sends one person with serious injuries to the emergency room.
The highway patrol says it happened shortly before 10:30 Wednesday night on Interstate 44, when 41-year-old Jesse Ray, of Desoto, struck the towed unit of the 18-wheeler sending his car off the roadway before overturning.
Ray was wearing a seat belt and suffered serious injuries…he was flown to a Springfield hospital.
The driver of the truck was not injured.
