The Missouri State Highway Patrol is urging drivers to be extra cautious behind the wheel over the next few weeks.
It’s harvest time across the Show-Me State, which means an increase in farm machinery traffic, especially on rural highways.
Those types of vehicles often take up a lot of space on the road and may be moving at a much slower pace than normal traffic.
In 2018, 186 Missouri traffic crashes involved farm equipment.
In those crashes, seven people were killed and 66 others were injured.
