ST. LOUIS, MO — A 50-year-old man was injured Thursday morning in a collision involving two conventional trucks on Interstate 70 westbound in St. Louis, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol.
The accident happened in the westbound lanes of I-70 east of mile marker 237 and was reported by Trooper R. K. Stone at 9:40 a.m.
