Crash involving semi-truck slows traffic on I-70
COLUMBIA - I-70 traffic slowed Thursday afternoon due to a crash involving a semi truck, an SUV and a small car.
Columbia Police Department officers said the crash happened when westward traffic began to slow down because of a paint striper on the side of the highway. They said the driver of the semi truck wasn't able to slow down quickly enough, causing him to rear-end the car in front of him.
As the semi-truck ran off the highway, it struck another car.
Police said one person involved in the crash was transported to the hospital with neck and back pain, and another has a minor cut on her forehead.
