Wednesday, Mar. 25th 2020

MoDOT has posted an update. See below.

Two people sustained minor injuries in a crash involving a pickup truck and grain truck that backed up traffic Wednesday on Interstate 70.

According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report, 82-year-old Samuel Dyer, of Marshall was driving his GMC Sierra eastbound on I-70.

When Dyer attempted to change lanes and negotiate a turn into the median at mile marker 136.4 in Boone County, he crossed in front of a grain truck driven by 35-year-old Andrew Plattner, of Waverly.

At around 8:46 a.m. Plattner struck the driver’s side of Dyer’s vehicle and traveled into the median striking the cable barrier and overturned.

Both Plattner and Dyer were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

This injury crash is in the median at mile-marker 136.2.
