Columbia Man Injured When Concrete Mixer Overturns
A Columbia man was injured Thursday morning when the concrete truck he was driving overturned in Boone County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that a 2016 Western Star Concrete Mixer, driven by 51-year-old Hartley S. Wright of Columbia, was southbound on US 63, south of Route H at 10:35 a.m., when the vehicle traveled off the left side of the roadway. The driver overcorrected, causing the truck to overturn and strike a guardrail. The truck came to rest on its driver side, facing south.
Wright suffered moderate injuries, and was transported by ambulance to University Hospital for treatment.
The concrete mixer was totaled.
