Joplin News First

The driver was not injured in the single vehicle crash

NEOSHO, Mo. — Right at 1:00 PM a semi-tractor-trailer exiting I-49 southbound ramp rolled as it was turning west on US-60. Initially it blocked all lanes of US-60. However after 2:00 PM the truck and cab were pulled to the shoulder to allow traffic.

Neosho Police tell us they now have traffic moving slow both directions. The driver not injured. He did not require transport to a hospital.

Ron’s Towing of Neosho will be off-loading 40,000 lbs of boxed merchandise, then uprighting the truck. This is estimated to take 4-5 hours.

For now you are asked to avoid the area (see map, red and orange marks stopped traffic).
