The Missouri State Highway Patrol's online report says an eastbound trucker from Garland, Texas, went off the left side of the road, hit a ditch, a guardrail and the bridge, and came to rest in the westbound passing lane. It says the driver, Anthony Mason, 25, was treated at the hospital in Rolla for minor injuries.
