APPLE ROAD TRACTOR TRAILER CRASH

JASPER COUNTY, Mo. — Just after 2:15 p.m. on Thursday reports of a tractor trailer overturned on Apple Road east of Joplin, near CR160.

On scene Missouri State Highway Patrol told us the driver was not injured.

The trailer is full of dried foods, like oatmeal. 41,000 pounds will have to be offloaded by hand before the tractor and trailer can be set upright.

Metro Towing and their crew are working in what feels like 0° when you factor the wind chill.
